We see or experience conflict every day. At work, your idea or contribution may not be understood and valued the way you feel it should. At home, your child may not see the value of maintaining their belongings in the manner you expect. At sporting events, a referee may make a call that a player thinks was out of line. In your Toastmasters club, you may have an idea on how to move the club forward that you feel is being overlooked or dismissed by your fellow club member or club leader. OR, maybe you’re a club leader who has club members who tell you they disagree with how you run a club meeting.
A Toastmasters club is no exception to experiencing conflict. As human beings, we often see conflict as a threat. As Toastmasters, we all joined a club because we wanted to experience personal growth through improving our communication and leadership skills. Part of that personal growth is understanding conflict and then working through instances where you feel like you’re not being heard and/or your needs or the needs of others are not being met. Join Lisa Berry, DTM, in this recorded webinar to gain the knowledge on how to identify, negotiate and build bridges, and not let barriers form during situations of conflict inside and outside of your Toastmasters club.
