As a result business schools and their teachers wrestle with new challenges as these changes accelerate."Teaching and Learning at Business Schools" brings together contributions from business school managers and educators involved in the International Teachers Programme; a faculty development programme started by Harvard Business School more than 30 years ago and now run by a consortium of the London Business School, Manchester Business School, Kellogg, Stern School of Business, INSEAD, HEC Paris, IAE Aix-en-Provence, IMD, SDA Bocconi Milan and Stockholm School of Economics.

We all know conflict is unavoidable, especially in the workplace. Whether it's a fight over resources, a disagreement about how to get things done, or an argument stemming from perceived differences in identities or values, it's a manager's role to navigate relationships, and build compromises and collaborations. "Conflict 101" gives readers the tools they need to ensure not only that employees get back on track, but that disagreements breed positive results. Readers will learn how to: build trust; harness negative emotions; encourage apologies and forgiveness; use a solution-seeking approach; and, say what needs to be said. Incorporating anecdotes taken from the author's twenty years of experience as a conflict resolution professional, the book helps readers more deeply understand how conflict is created, how to respond to it, and how to manage it more effectively.
