“Conflicts come from many sources. Asking the right questions in the right way to the right people will get you to the root cause of a conflict more quickly.The answer may be surprising and not always as it seems at first glance! We’ll practice these skills, plus how to deal with the conflict once we’ve found the root cause.”
