The LEADER Approach to Conflict Resolution

with Chris Rogers

About This Class

Want to make a change in your workplace and grow together? Well, we want to help! This class is great for leaders looking to improve personal interaction within their teams.
Conflict in the workplace is natural and often considered unavoidable. How leaders address, manage, and mitigate the effects of interpersonal conflicts, however, can make the difference between a pleasant atmosphere and a hostile, toxic, workplace environment.
If you have occasional interpersonal conflict, tension, or underperformers on your team, then this class is for you! The LEADER approach provides you with an easily understandable, vividly memorable, and replicable model to employ when leading others through difficult situations.
Join me as we explore how employing the LEADER approach can improve your ability to positively influence others and lead your team with purpose and confidence through any challenge.

In this class you will: 

  • Learn to employ an effective model for resolving conflict among and between teammates
  • Build confidence in your ability to take charge of a difficult situation
  • Learn how to identify and mitigate the impact of assumptions you make and biases you carry into a conflict situation
  • Discover effective tools and resources that help you better understand the people with whom you work and engage
  • Broaden your perspective and gain new insights on impactful leadership by engaging with other developing leaders

Pretty great actually—thanks so much for asking! We hope you’re having a great day as well.

All class times are listed in US Eastern Standard Time. We are working to add more time slots that are time-zone friendly globally.

While we wish we could clone Simon, science just isn’t quite there yet. That is why we’ve trained our Optimist Instructors to teach our classes. However, our two on-demand courses are taught by Simon – check out Find Your WHY and The Art of Presenting!

We are always looking to add more class options to accommodate our global audience. We hope to have some great options for you soon. In the meantime, Simon’s books have been translated into multiple languages and can be ordered online.

We totally understand that schedules can change at the last minute. An unedited recording is available for 48 hours after class ends for all classes except for our WHY series.

We’re glad you asked! Our 60- and 90-minute classes offer: more detail, more connection with your fellow attendees, more activities, and more interaction with our instructors. The 25-minute classes are more lecture-style. They feature more information-per-minute, but the shorter timeframe also means fewer opportunities for active participation.

We know you’re busy and, if you can’t easily spare 60 minutes, we don’t want to deprive you of an opportunity to grow!

Yes! Buy any three of our 25-minute classes in one purchase and you’ll get the third class for half-price. This means that if you purchase a bundle of three 25-minute classes, it will cost $100 instead of the full $120. The $20 discount will be applied to your cart automatically during checkout. If you buy three 25-minute classes in separate transactions, you’ll pay the full price for all classes. 

Yes, we have team options! We love that you are looking to take care of those around you. Your team can join a public class, and you’ll receive a team discount at checkout when you register 10+ team members.  

If you want a private class just for your team, on a date and time that works for you, then visit our private class page and our team will be excited to help you. 

 Our team is more than happy to assist you; just contact us here and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
