Summary

The pandemic has given us great examples of unity and camaraderie, but some healthcare trainees have faced challenging conflicts in the workplace where everyone is under duress. In this podcast we are in conversation with coaches Hazel Russo, Nick Cromwell and educator John Launer on managing conflict during difficult times. They provide useful information about managing conflict generally and techniques for achieving better communication and understanding of yourself and others and the responsibility of institutions.
