About "Discover Your Conflict Style: Cross-Cultural Communication Series Workshop 1"
How you respond to disagreements matters when working in a diverse group or team.

Using the Intercultural Conflict Styles Inventory (ICS®) assessment tool, Wilder trainers Cardina Esparza and Nell Goepel will work with you to:
- Learn about four forms of communication and your preferred approach to communication
- Reflect on the perception of emotions and your reactions during disagreements
- Gain a cross-cultural understanding of communication and conflict resolution
- Complete the Intercultural Conflict Styles Inventory (ICS®) assessment. *Please note: If you have taken the ICS assessment, please bring your results and guide to the workshop.
