The hardest, and most important, moments in game development are when people disagree and emotions run high. These are the moments where you get the promotion or you don't, you get the publishing deal or you fail, your design suggestion is accepted or rejected, or you convince a candidate to accept your offer or they go to your competitor. This interactive session will help you collaborate better by more candidly conducting difficult conversations. You will: reflect on how you relate to conflict, your organization's culture around conflict, and how conflict might be useful; experience how a healthy mix of assertion and cooperation leads to true collaboration; and learn how emotional intelligence can help anyone better navigate difficult conversations. You will leave with an improved ability to make the best of any conflict and find your way to better collaboration, all so you can make even better games and have a better career!
