A3 seminar: ‘Identifying and Improving Conflict Resolution Styles’
Dee Wernette, former Argonne employee, will present “Identifying and Improving Conflict Resolution Styles” on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, at the Argonne Guest House. The seminar begins at 11 a.m. followed by a lunch. Hosted by the Argonne Alumni Association (A3), the event is open to all current and retired employees and members of the public.
A plated lunch will be available immediately following the presentation. The menu choices include: pasta, salads, and various sandwiches for $14/person including beverage, service charge and sales tax.
To register for the seminar, email Dave Livengood and indicate if you will attend the presentation only or the presentation and lunch. Non-employees require a gate pass and should email Angie McKay by Monday, Oct. 15, to request one.
Conflicts are something we all face in our daily lives. The presentation will take the form of a workshop (participation optional) that will use 30 questions to help participants identify their most frequent or preferred styles for handling conflict situations. The advantages and disadvantages of each style will be discussed and situations best suited to each strategy will be identified.
Dee Wernette has spent many years studying the nature of conflict and its resolution, beginning with his studies at the University of Michigan where he earned a Ph.D. in sociology with a dissertation on political conflict and violence. While at Argonne, he developed and led a workshop on public involvement and conflict management for DOE and DOD staff. He has also served as a professor at Lewis University where he taught courses on the sociology of conflict.
