183: Dealing with Conflict at Work - Strategies for Survival

The Mid-Career GPS Podcast

Sep 12 2023 • 21 mins

Back when I was an adjunct professor, I found myself in the middle of a heated conflict. It was a tough situation, but it taught me the importance of standing firm and handling conflict effectively, especially in a leadership role. Today, we're opening up that treasure trove of experience and sharing it with you, along with some solid strategies to tackle those difficult conversations with poise and precision.

Imagine having a GPS that could navigate you through the rough terrain of mid-career conflicts! Well, you're about to get just that. We're exploring techniques like maintaining calm, setting boundaries, using "I" statements, and more – all to help you chart a clear path out of conflict. And we're not stopping there. Should you consider third-party mediation? What should you do after the dust settles and the conflict is resolved? We're covering all that and more, equipping you with skills that won't just resolve conflicts quicker but will also foster an atmosphere of respect, improved communication, and teamwork. Tune in, this is one journey you don't want to miss!
