How do you view conflict? Many people view conflict as a threat. Asked for words and concepts that they associate with the term “conflict,” few people offer positive terms. However, within most conflicts there is the potential for a satisfying solution. If managed appropriately, conflict can be a powerful source of energy and creativity.
Ansley Barton, LLC, offers a full range of conflict management services, helping individuals, businesses, educational institutions, and government entities to handle conflict constructively and with confidence.
