Conflict Resolution, with Rhonda Sutton, Ph.D.

Tuesday, June 20, 2017
9:30 am to 11:00 am

Conflict...the very thought of it can cause people to cringe or want to run (away from it!).  However, conflict is a normal part of life, and there are ways to manage it. In general, there are five different modes of handling conflict; do you know the "mode" you tend to use?  This seminar will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about your conflict mode style.  This workshop will present each of the different conflict modes, along with the skills needed for that particular approach and the best situations in which to use it.  Participants will gain awareness about the strengths they have when addressing conflict, and they will also learn new tools to manage conflict more effectively. Our speaker for this workshop is Dr. Rhonda Sutton, Director of College Leadership Programs at NC State University.

Please note: Participants will be required to take a short online quiz prior to the seminar, and they will need to print off a copy of their results to bring with them to the seminar (but they will not have to disclose their results to anyone).

This workshop is open to Graduate School students and postdocs and is sponsored by the Professional Development Series. Questions? Contact The Graduate School's professional development team at
