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.

DESIGN THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR YOU
If you had to choose, would you prefer to have an engaged and productive workforce or one with less drama and turmoil?
I suspect your answer is both, and I'm happy to say you don't have to choose. When your people are equipped with the right skillset you can experience positive morale and higher profits with less strife, absenteeism, and turnover.
Through my three books in my PLAY NICE in Your Sandbox series, ten workshops that I can deliver in person or virtually, plus an online course titled CPR Mastery (CPR= Conflict Prevention & Resolution), I have helped numerous companies in the public and private sectors transform into cooperative, enjoyable, and peaceful workplaces.
My training includes lots of appropriate humor that can help your participants learn and apply tools, tips, and techniques that will serve you, and them well, both at work and at home.
