October 29, 2014: Putting Courage to Work: Transforming Conflict into Collaboration

Speaker: Corey Jamison, President and CEO of Corey Jamison Consulting

  • A new perspective on conflict as a collaborative tool for engagement.
  • A checklist to help determine in the moment whether to engage in a conflict, turn away from it, or
