Misunderstandings and disagreements happen because your most valuable information is being lost between leaving your mouth and being processed by the other person's brain.

In this Inspiring Women in STEM Forum, Dr. Robyn Odegaard (Doc Robyn) will share tips and provide hands-on exercises on Productive ConflictTM Resolution. Each attendee will leave with new skills and a copy of her book "The Ultimate Guide to Handling Every Disagreement Every Time".
