Dr. Abel Kadry – Conflicts and the Role of Mediation in Mitigating some of Their Consequences
Conflicts (at work, in the family, or in the community) are associated with a variety of negative outcomes, including poor relationships, hostility, anxiety, depression, poor sleep, back pain, and migraines. According to some published reports, conflicts cost American businesses more than $350 billion per year because of reduced work performance, low employee morale, and revenue loss. This presentation will discuss the most common causes of conflict and the role of mediation in resolving and mitigating some of the negative consequences.
