This week on Conflict Managed we are joined by Dr. Alex Richardson, Director of the National High School Ethics Bowl.
Join us as we discuss:
The constant process of negotiating and navigating with others
Embracing humility and civility in discussions
Reframing work conflict as a personal developmental feature
The critical nature of mission alignment
Descent improves products (and us!)
