As leaders, discuss with your classmates the role of productive conflict within the workplace (at least 3 posts). We all have people in our lives (at work, in our families, within organizations) that have toxic behaviors. Tell us a bit about this relationship and how it has impacted you (without using any names, please). Which category does their toxic behavior fit into? How have you chosen to engage or disengage with this person? How can you use your “lens of understanding” to minimize the toxicity of this relationship? How does this week’s TED video support the use of negotiation and collaboration in challenging relationships?
