Conflict, well-managed, is a dynamic catalyst for positive change
Mismanaged conflict produces hostility, stress and costs to individuals and organizations. If you are interested in reducing the costs of conflict, making better decisions, or more effectively dealing with change, a few moments discussing options with Agree is time well spent.
Agree focuses on helping clients make better decisions through the use of appropriate conflict management processes. Experience has shown that this approach will significantly reduce the cost of conflict management. At the same time, processes which emphasize principled negotiation, consensus building and collaboration tend to empower and increase the effectiveness of all involved.
These tools and models are perfect for anyone who spends their time solving problems or resolving conflict!
