• Drill down to some of the root causes of bickering.
• Develop solutions to help prevent and deal with bickering within your organizations.
I thoroughly enjoyed the session. Had I known it would be so great, I would have attended previous sessions.
What I found most valuable was the dialog between everyone and the sharing of experiences. It was reassuring to know that others have had like experiences.
I came away with greater awareness of the impact that choice of words and attitude have in the course of conversation/dialogue with others. I found that the Beyond Bickering session gave me more direction on how to identify and avoid bickering, how to be aware of my own words and how I approach a conversation with coworkers, and how to avoid that type of negative interaction.
This was my first session and I felt that it was conducted very efficiently. It was very inviting, there was great dialogue, and the moderators were exceptional with keeping the conversation on track. I can’t think of any improvements other than that more people should participate.
