Conflict Resolution

Join us at our upcoming member meeting/workshop on conflict resolution.

Have you had a conflict at work or with a volunteer? Do your volunteers have conflicts with each other? Then this workshop is for you!

Lead by Direct Supply's Senior Learning Consultant, Shannon Morgan, this workshop will ask us, "What is a conflict?" and will teach us how we can best resolve conflicts in our personal and professional lives. 

Please come prepared with a conflict or two in mind. This workshop will allow for informative small group discussions.
