    Topic: How to Change Conflict into Collaboration

    Conflict is not a bad thing. In fact, it can be the first step toward collaboration.

    During our February meeting, Stanley Ward will explain how all conflict can be reduced to two basic areas of concern:

    1. Concern for self, and

    2. Concern for the others involved.

    We might express this as “What I need” and “What you need.” When these two items are not in harmony (or when we think they are not in harmony) we have conflict. When you foresee a conflict situation or find yourself in the middle of one, here are two actions that will move the situation away from conflict and toward collaboration.

    *Pre-approved for 1 hour SHRM-PCD and 1 hour general HRCI credits

The school initially trained veterans returning from World War II in need of both an education and employment, many of whom worked at the LeTourneau manufacturing plant nearby campus in the alter-day program. Meeting the needs of students balancing their work, life’s responsibilities and educational goals isn’t a new concept or budding initiative here. It’s a commitment that’s part of our very make-up.

    With educational centers around the state and a suite of online programs, LeTourneau University's degree options are fluid and flexible—including for corporate partners looking to sharpen the skills of your workforce.

    LeTourneau's corporate partnerships are designed to meet growing industry needs and make a lasting impact. Whether it’s graduate business training, a welding certification, an RN-to-BSN offering or online cybersecurity training, we start with your organizational need and end with industry influence in mind.
