Event description

Description

People can disagree about almost anything from the best strategic direction for a company to individual disagreements about political views and values. These disagreements can take the form of office politics, political maneuvering, or public policy problems. In a professional setting, differences of opinion can impede progress and stall work productivity. The question remains: How do you make progress when working with people who disagree with you—even when it seems practically impossible?

In this workshop, award-winning professors at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy will help you gain a more nuanced understanding of how to overcome disagreements, how to approach those who hold different opinions and views, and how to influence others and make progress on even the most divisive issues.

Some of the biggest obstacles to progress lie in how people approach a discussion, how they structure their messages, and how they view those who hold different opinions. In this course, you can expect to learn how to frame your messages to appeal to people whose opinions otherwise seem non-negotiable and make progress despite differences of opinion.

Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a record of participation.
