NEW PROGRAM: Managing Intercultural Conflict

September 23 - 28, 2018

David Litt"Crises and conflicts are on the rise in number, frequency and intensity. In the realm of today’s international relations, professional diplomats are not the only responders to crisis. Many organizations become involved in conflict resolution, but few have sufficient training in managing them, especially across cultural and organizational divides. Without adequate preparation, we risk fueling conflicts, rather than resolving them. We must learn to build the communication and trust across organizational cultures that lead to effective cooperation in conflict management. This Executive Certificate is designed to do just that."
