Construction Supervisors need to recognize and respond to conflicts constructively to maintain productivity and solidarity in their crews.  Effective conflict resolution skills enable supervisors to deal with issues promptly and fairly, but also to recognize when issues need to be escalated in the chain of command.  Conflict resolution skills are also helpful in reducing and managing stress on the team. 

This module is intended to help participants recognize and respond proactively to conflicts that occur between and within their crews.  Participants will explore concepts such as destructive and constructive conflict, stress, personal approaches to conflict and assertiveness techniques. 


  • Understand what conflict is
  • Apply a constructive approach to conflict management
  • Overcome resistance to conflict resolution
  • Demonstrate assertive techniques to overcome destructive behavior

Intended Audience

Any woman in the construction industry looking to gain practical skills to resolve conflict effectively.
