The $668 Billion Opportunity:
Using Curiosity to Move through Conflict to Connection

Jenn Whitmer
Speaker, Consultant, Joy-Bringer
Consone Consulting

Your success as a leader will rise and fall with your ability to manage conflict. Conflict avoided creates unhealthy and unproductive teams; conflict mismanaged often strikes more harm than good. And mismanaged conflict costs US businesses $668 billion a year. Not to mention that it’s an energy drain and productivity zap.


11:00 am – 12:15 pm – Networking, Welcome, and Lunch
12:15 pm – 1:00 pm – Presentation and Final Announcements

Key Take-A-Ways:

  • Describe how personality impacts communication and miscommunication
  • Identify the three conflict coping styles and how each brings strengths and challenges to conflict resolution.
  • Evaluate questions in three categories to resolve conflict.
