Conflict Management Training goes directly to the heart of this problem. We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our co-workers. Conflicts that are ignored or poorly resolved don’t go away–they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on the company are a loss of productivity, absenteeism, and turnover.
Do you have the self-awareness, solid communication skills, and motivation to resolve uncomfortable situations? The ability to effectively manage conflict separates the good from the outstanding performers.
Those who embrace conflict can build understanding and better relationships—and experience more significant personal and professional success. But managing conflict is not easy. In this workshop, you’ll discover your emotional triggers and learn how to manage challenging encounters with diplomacy, tact, and credibility.
This seminar also will be focused on negotiation, a tool of conflict resolution, as an alternative to violence. Through facilitated discussions and exercises, it gave participants the opportunity to share negotiation experiences and practice fundamental negotiation skills.
Conflict management is a necessary skill for any individual who works with a group. No matter how large or how small, it is likely that any group will see some level of conflict among it, and a person who has excellent conflict management skills will become a valuable part of any team.
The courses and seminars we offer will strengthen you in the area of conflict. Workshops give individuals the chance to put into practice the principles of conflict management that are taught through the courses. Understanding conflict management is a great way to become a valuable asset in all areas of your life.
