The Art of Disagreement

Wednesday, 15 July 2020
9:00 am – 10:00 am
    • Jeff Heasman, Managing Director, Insurance Upskill

Disagreements are inevitable and they are often perceived in a negative light. However, through more honest and constructive conversations, a disagreement can be positive and even result in you retaining or winning new business.

A culture in which disagreements are seen in a positive way will also encourage creativity and openness.

This session will teach you how to recognise the "spark" that leads to a disagreement and then how to manage the interaction towards a positive outcome.
