Who is this course for?
As life becomes busier with ‘more things to do’, ‘places to be’ or ‘people to meet with’ filling our agenda, it also becomes more fraught. This course develops your understanding of what triggers anger patterns, the circumstances that bring them forth, as well as the effective management of conflict within yourself and between individuals within the workplace. It, therefore, suits all classes of personnel within your business.
- learn and practise key skills to build your confidence
- maintain composure whilst de-escalating conflict.
- understand, recognise and implement strategies for managing and resolving conflict
- practise and test a range of models and techniques to help recognise, manage and resolve workplace conflict
BenefitsWhile there are many reasons to engage in conflict, the purpose of conflict management is to arrive at a resolution. In this Conflict Management course you will learn to recognise different signs and stages of conflict, be able to identify the key components present in angry confrontations and be able to prevent the situation escalating. You will learn how to maintain your composure when responding to conflict and learn skills in how to manage your words, and body language to bring about resolution.
