Conflict. It is, as Thanos would say, inevitable. Conflict is bound to occur, no matter what we do to try and avoid it. The best we can do is assess the situation and try and resolve it with the best possible outcome for those involved. In this episode, the student workers of the CLE discuss how they recognize a conflict arising, how to manage it as best they can, and how they would go about resolving it.  Presented by the Center of Leadership and Engagement!

Episode 1: What is Leadership To You?
Welcome to the CLE Leadership Podcast! Brought to you by the Center for Leadership and Engagement I'm Joseph Perez, Graduate Student Leadership Coordinator and I'm here with my student leader staff Ariana, Fab, Alejandra, Leslie, and Mu.
