CONQUERING CONFLICT presented by communication expert Amy Castro: Participants in this workshop will learn to identify people’s individual conflict styles- including their own, specific verbal and nonverbal techniques to use that can throw water on a flaring conflict rather than fuel, and a new way to view conflict- as an opportunity to improve relationships and outcomes rather than something to be dreaded and avoided. Amy Castro is a communication expert with over 20 years of experience in training, consulting, and coaching organizations and individuals in all aspects of communication. Amy is the author of, “Practical Communication: 25 Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Getting Along and Getting Things Done."
