Resolving & Managing Conflict

Module Overview

Nobody’s perfect. Now and then, somebody is going to overreact or underreact … blurt out something you might wish they hadn’t … & set in motion a cascade of conflict that ignites bad-feelings & needless stress amid colleagues.

Would you like to be able to exercise greater control in these situations, or assist colleagues in making the appropriate intervention – to resolve these conflicts harmoniously and decisively at the earliest stage possible?

Through individual exercises, small-group discussion, self-assessment instruments and skill-practice sessions, this 1-day training course on managing conflict is designed to equip you with the behavioural practices to nip in the bud the forces that give rise to such instances of workplace disharmony – drawing on an array of measures to ensure a speedy resolution & an early return to normality.
