Session 7: Managing conflict - difficult conversations
Team collaboration is essential to maintaining a healthy workplace and delivering high-quality patient care. How can we navigate the dynamics of managing up, across, and down? How do we build productive relationships with toxic colleagues and bosses? What collaborative approaches can we take with our colleagues to improve the structure and functions (and dysfunctions) of our teams?
