Description

Managing Conflict in Teams During Times of Change


Conflict and difference amongst team members can occur at any time, though the process of change can provide particular fuel for tensions. Team members may withdraw or act defensively so that an atmosphere of antagonism and blame displaces one of generosity and cooperation.

What role can leaders take during these times to overt and deal effectively with conflict in teams?

Heather Pickard has worked in the AOD sector for the past 20 years and has been involved in stewarding teams through turbulent times. She is currently the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at SHARC and will be sharing some of her wisdoms and insights into this topic. Heather is also an esteemed Change Agent Network alumna.


Some of the areas covered in this presentation include:

  • Preparing for change and forecasting the impacts on staff

  • Intervening early into challenging behaviours

  • Keeping a focus on goals, shared values and learning

  • Balancing the needs of the individual and the team

  • Managing high conflict

  • Holding the team and looking after yourself

This presentation will be most useful for those leaders who are dealing with disruptions and conflict within teams and are looking to develop strategies that will foster learning and enhance resilience.


Who should attend?

Anyone working in the Victorian AOD sector is welcome to attend. This includes all clinicians, workers, team leaders, managers, senior managers and other staff. This presentation will be most useful for those leaders.

This presentation is also offered as an online webinar.
