How do we deal with the different ‘dragons’ that have prevented us from fighting fair? How do we manage our emotions during conflict? How can focusing on relationship help prevent and de-escalate conflict?
Learn more from Dr John Ng, one of Asia’s thought-leaders and conflict management experts in conflict management and Author of ‘Smiling Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ and his team as they take you into this peace-making journey. Discover your own conflict styles from the first Asian-based COSPI (COnflict Style Preference Indicator), an online self-assessment instrument.

Do you find that people are less engaged in their work?
Do you find that the pressure to perform is becoming greater and more difficult to manage?
Do you find challenges in time management?

You will learn practical tips to increase your energy and therefore become more productive in your work.
