Mini Workshop:

Reset Conflict in the Workplace: A Framework for Rebooting Relationships

Sponsored by Furst Group & NuBrick Partners

Has your computer ever gone haywire, and no matter what buttons you pushed or programs you ran you just couldn’t get it to work correctly? Finally, you call the help desk, and their solution is to reboot and start over.


Work relationships can be the same - sometimes they need a reboot. Over time, what we do and say can erode our relationships. When you spend so much time with co-workers, it’s inevitable that conflict will arise.


Sometimes, you simply need a reset. Reset discussions are not meant to fix problems, but rather, mend the relationship and establishing a better rapport moving forward.


During this mini-workshop, we will walk through a reset discussion and provide you actionable takeaways that you can apply right away, including:


  • The skills you need for effective reset discussions – curiosity, empathy, and vulnerability

  • Cultural barriers to resetting

  • A framework for you to reboot relationships
