Conflict Resolution – One Day

Unless populated by clones with the same ideas and opinions, organisations are inevitably going to have conflict situations develop amongst their employees, at whatever level!

What a lot of people don’t appreciate is that conflict can often produce positive benefits, flushing a logjam through and creating understanding where previously there was acrimony – not always obvious at the outset of a conflict!

Interestingly, for those meant to manage difficult situations and who do not – possibly through their lack of confidence and fear of conflict – additional tensions, anxiety and potential stress can result.

This course explores the many and varied elements concerned with conflict, from the reasons why it occurs, the various levels of conflict, through to the behaviours which can help to resolve it. Equally applicable to anyone likely to face conflict and require a resolution.
