Seems daunting...generational differences in the work place...effectively dealing with conflict...what should leaders do? #RelationshipsMatter
Although there are no easy answers, the path is easier to navigate when the right people are brought together. Tony Hutti and Renaissance Executive Forums Indiana add value for area member CEOs by hosting Leadership Summits like this one.
Thanks Karl Ahlrichs of Gregory & Appel Insurance for digging deeper into the various generations in today's workplace. KAIROS's Chip Neidigh took us all a step further towards having those difficult conversations about conflict.
It was a bonus to have so many quality business leaders in attendance to learn and share experiences.
Run to the Fire: Creating a Culture where Productive Conflict Thrives
Most of us run from danger; when there's a conflagration, we get people (including ourselves) out of its way. On U.S. Navy submarines, however, sailors are trained to "run to the fire," because there is limited oxygen underwater. They go where the danger is, because that is where they are most needed. This takes courage and leadership. In our organizations, interpersonal conflicts impede our success. The best leaders surface and productively resolve even the thorniest conflicts. They have learned how to increase the cohesion and courage of their teams by implementing some simple (but not easy) processes to "run to the fire."
