Conflict management in the workplace is essential to productivity. Workplace conflict costs organisations millions of dollars in lost productivity, increased turnover and litigation and it's so unnecessary. Author Maureen Fitzgerald introduces the reader to a new method of conflict resolution in the workplace called Corporate Circles.

In a Corporate Circle, teams come together in a confidential and candid conversation. In a matter of hours, even the most dysfunctional group is able to share their own and appreciate others' perspectives, overcome negative feelings, and move toward a more positive future.

It is much easier and more cost-effective to create a place where people feel safe to express how they really feel, get past the hard feelings they have been harboring and make a fresh start. This is what Corporate Circles provide.
