HRDQ Conflict Style Assessment and Training

Here are the five suggested Conflict Style Assesments and Training resources offered:

1. Conflict Strategies

Our Conflict Strategies assessment serves as a great introduction to the different ways people handle disputes. Based on 35 years of research, we’ve narrowed down five primary conflict styles: integrating, compromising, competing, smoothing, and avoiding. Through this assessment, participants will learn about each style and discover the one that’s unique to them.

Participants will dive into the strengths and weaknesses of their conflict styles and learn how to flex to meet the needs of differing types. After working through the material, each participant should have a great foundation on conflict that they can start applying in the workplace.

3. Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Patrick Lencioni is a world-renowned team management specialist. He delivers presentations across the globe to help companies better improve their teams. When you take the Five Dysfunctions of a Team assessment, you’ll be gaining access to the exact team-building lessons he uses with the businesses he works with.

Lencioni established five key fundamentals that make up a successful group: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. With this workshop, you’ll discover which of these fundamentals are lacking within your team. Weaknesses in any of these areas are likely causing the tension within or between groups. Your leaders should walk away with an actionable plan to strengthen problem areas. They’ll also be ready to lay out clearer expectations and know how to measure the group’s ability to meet team goals. Having these tools will further cultivate trust between employees and prevent conflict from occurring in the first place.

4. Negotiating Style Profile

Negotiation is a form of conflict management and a conflict style assessment. This skill is all about reaching an agreement that benefits both parties. Our Negotiating Style Profile assessment will introduce you to everything you need to know about this important skill. Many people view negotiation as simply beating an opponent, when in reality, it’s the opposite. In order to reach mutual agreements, you must also be able to cultivate productive relationships with those you are disputing with. Negotiation is a learned art that must be practiced to get right, but without it, you’ll find that it’s much more difficult to reach the results you desire in an agreeable manner.
