Managing Professional Conflict

Presented by Cris Gilbert, NU Ombudsman
Conflict is part of being human and thus it is a pervasive aspect of sociocultural

experienced conflict at the workplace are ‘living in a dream world, blind
to their surroundings or are confined to solitary confinement’ (Boohar,
2001). This short introduction to Conflict will prepare you for the Conflict
Resolution Certificate from LinkedIn Learning.
