Managing Conflict in Project Teams

The goals of this section are to explore the nature of conflict on teams, explain five conflict-handling styles that team members often use in group projects, and provide you with several strategies for managing conflict on teams.

In each presentation (created in Macromedia Breeze), you can use the “Outline” tab to navigate to a specific part of the presentation, or the “Notes” tab to see a text transcript of each slide. At the end of each presentation there is a brief quiz to test your understanding.
