Happier Co-workers  |  Higher Productivity  |  Higher Profitability

All workplaces experience poor communication and conflict among staff from time to time. These problems lead to poor morale, lower productivity and profitability, higher turnover - to mention just a few. However, while miscommunications and conflict situations are inevitable, they need not negatively impact your workplace. 

Research is clear that the average U.S. worker spends 2.5 hours a week dealing with conflict. This is estimated to lower an individual employee's productivity by as much as 28%. The annual cost of conflict to American businesses is estimated to be in the area of $359 Billion.

You might feel frustrated, thinking about tension among your team and the effort you exert to bring about unity and collaboration when your time could be better spent building your business. 

But what if your team members were equipped to:

  • Communicate productively?
  • Prevent trivial matters from escalating out-of-hand?
  • Resolve significant differences in a positive and lasting manner?

Conflict itself is not the problem. You will always have conflicts now and then. It's not knowing how to deal with them that destroys a team and thus their productivity and happiness. Conflict handled well actually builds up your team’s ability to handle differences and forge better ways to work together.

The workplace should be a happy and meaningful part of life.

"If you take care of your employees, then they will take care of your customers, which in turn will take care of your finances." ~ Ron Price

As a result of the well-constructed workshops, employees gained useful tools to avoid conflict, maintain relationships with co-workers and learned to deal with change.

About Ron

See Our Privacy Policy


An Irish Proverb says “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.” While I can’t help with the sleep problem, I sure enjoy helping people laugh. A few years ago as I was about to deliver a keynote the host introduced me as “Ron Price, Author, Speaker, and Humorist.”

Though I had not suggested or requested that introduction, I instantly claimed it as my own. I have a daily goal to help at least ten people laugh, and more is certainly merrier.
As a mediator and relationship coach for over 30 years, I well know that life can be hard, that many people are struggling today. Many of the difficulties people face today are due to unresolved conflict with important people in their lives. Often they are due to unresolved conflict within themselves.

While I did not coin the term “edutainer” that is another title which I claim. Drawing from my many years of experience and personal training, I help educate people in important life skills, all the while keeping them entertained and engaged.
