Conflict is an inevitable part of the human experience. Since we all have different experiences, beliefs, expectations, goals, cultures, and values, it is impossible for us to agree on everything. These disagreements will predictably lead to conflict. It is also a very human characteristic to believe that what we know and believe is the truth, and that those who see things differently must be wrong. The result? Conflict. As a leader, your challenge is not to prevent conflict, but to make sure differences between or among employees, between yourself and employees, or between employees and your company do not become dysfunctional. Conflict in itself is not a bad thing—it is often a catalyst for change. If you take the time to understand the causes of conflicts in your workplace, and help your employees negotiate peaceful resolutions or compromises, you can use this energy in a positive way. This course will show you where conflicts often arise, why they happen, and offer suggestions on how you, the leader, can deal with them constructively. Leadership Development Series Background The Leadership Development series was developed for Edumine by Dr. Elaine Cullen, President of Prima Consulting Services, and by Trudy Gallinger, Director of Curriculum Development for Prima Consulting Services. We draw upon a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from those who are thought leaders, practitioners, and professors in the art of leadership. We provide references for the many wise teachers and guides we used to create this series, and hope you will take the time to learn from them as well. How we have put the series together, however, and the unique ways we have presented the material as it relates to the mining industry, is ours alone. While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete the Leadership Development - Introduction to Leadership course. This will ensure that we have a common understanding of what leadership entails, and common language to use in working through the entire course series. Authors Elaine T.

Leadership … what is it and how do I know whether I am an effective leader or manager? This course will introduce you to different styles of leadership, and help you determine which one(s) you indentify with the most, as well as what kind of leader you want to be. You will meet historic and current experts in this field, and learn why certain styles are more effective in one situation than another. We will also challenge you to learn about other leadership styles that may work better in your organization, with a workforce that is becoming more diverse, and that includes people from different cultures, backgrounds, and generations. This course is part of the Leadership Development series. While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete this course before moving on to the other courses.

Motivating others to do what needs to be done can be a true challenge. How do we know what motivates our employees when we aren't too sure what even motivates us as leaders? This course looks at some of the theories about motivation, as well as why people are motivated by different things at different times of their lives. We offer some motivational tools, and we provide some simple models to help you and your employees set goals and to increase the likelihood those goals will be successful.

This course will introduce you to the role culture plays in the beliefs and behaviors of people. We will look at how cultures form, and how they provide both the roadmap and the rules that members must follow. We will use Hofstede's index to see how national cultures differ and how easy it is to go wrong when working with people from other cultures. We will look at occupational cultures and organizational cultures, with the goal of providing you tools to maneuver through the minefield that can easily trip you up. We also introduce a diversity model that will help you deal with the cultural differences in your work team that could be causing conflict.

One of the biggest challenges you will face as a leader is creating an effective team that may include members of four different generations (with a fifth due to start entering the workforce in just a couple of years). This course will provide information on how these four generations differ, why that is so, and what you as a leader can do to reduce the inevitable generational conflict among your employees. We will also provide information on what each generation expects of its leaders, what types of rewards are most effective, and how to provide training that meets the needs of all. We include strategies to deal with what is being called "The Great Crew Change"—the exodus of older workers who are leaving and taking with them the collective organizational knowledge and wisdom.

This course looks at several assessments designed to help us understand our own personality and how we differ from other people. We emphasize the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)—the most widely-used, which helps us see how and why different personalities view the world (and the workplace) differently. Different personality types have strong preferences for what leadership style they use and how they prefer to be led. As a leader, identifying your employees' personality types can help you understand their expectations and how to handle conflicts.
