Productive Conflict™ Resolution:
Why it is Critical to Your Success and How to Use it

Rosa Colon-Kolacko


Robyn Odegaard, PsyD
Champion Performance Development

Why disagreements and misunderstandings happen and what to do about them is fundamentally misunderstood. Columbia University did a study that showed 80 percent of adults will not engage in conflict resolution without outside help. Even when we are willing to do so, there is a huge disconnect between how we present our case and how it is heard by the other person. Your most valuable information is being lost between leaving your mouth and being processed by the other person’s brain.

This Inspiring Women in STEM Forum will teach you how to understand why this discrepancy occurs and how to overcome it in order to gain influence, freedom, success, and most importantly, happiness by successfully handling every disagreement every time.

Registration is NOW OPEN!
