I would certainly like to attend the conflict management workshop. I think that if we can solve the problems of each member in team, we can create the ways that we can develop our team well. Beside, a manager can manage effectively conflict, they will encourage the employees to improve environment of each teams or companies.

If I had attended, I would choose "Developing creative thinking in your team", since this program would provide us with the necessary tools for innovation within management, in addition to emphasizing catharsis to positively renew personal ideals, which can be useful on a social and communicative level

I would attend the first Morning program conference because it allows me to learn about different management styles and how I can adapt to a team, apply feedback and provide employees with tools to deal with change and to see the positive aspects that any change can bring.

If I attended a conference, I would be interested in one titled Developing creative thinking in your team because this perhaps gives us tools to think about a solution to any kind of problems or uncertainty a team could face.

I would attend the conference about conflict management with Tracy Edwards.
To reach the goal of the company the manager should ensure that employees work in goods condition and peaceful environment. That conference could help manager to avert conflicts and sort out them inside the company. Then attending this conference, manager will have many resources to evoid conflicts into his company and branch out it or make it great.
