The Pembina Valley Chapter of CPHR Manitoba invites you to the fourth annual Business Leaders Boot Camp 2019! Open to all small and large business owners, HR staff, supervisors and managers.


Managing Conflict in the Workplace
Linda Chammartin – People First HR Services

While we tend to view conflict as a negative experience, caused by abnormally difficult circumstances, it is a normal part of organization life. Approaching conflict as an opportunity for growth through improved understanding and insight – ultimately leads to a healthy, positive and cooperative environment.

This session will bring new awareness of people’s reactions to conflict and provide an opportunity for participants to identify conflict management styles and asses their own personal styles for dealing with conflict. Knowing and understanding one’s own style – and when and how to modify it, is essential for the success of every organization.

Diverse Teams at Work
