Conflict is natural part of working with other people, we cannot be always in full agreement with everybody. Managing conflict well is a fundamental part of good leadership practice and essential for the mental health and well-being of all research group members.

In this webinar we will explore how to better manage conflict in our day-to-day work by looking into the most common types of conflict, the early warning signs, our beliefs about conflict as well as some tools for navigating conflict and creating a safe environment that can help us avoid the harmful sides of conflict.
