Learn from experts on how to pre-empt and deal effectively with conflict in the workplace. Facing conflict at work can feel incredibly challenging and stressful to most employees and managers and dealing with it well is no less of a challenge. An ability to nip staff disputes in the bud, when practised effectively, can become a major skill in both work and life. It is not only key for limiting damage, but it can actually strengthen workplace relationships. 

This skills-based workshop is for anyone looking to pre-empt or deal effectively with any type of conflict situation in the workplace. Through a combination of real-life stories and practical techniques, it will help you be able to:

  • Diagnose the source of the conflict and be clear on how to engage with it
  • Recognise different approaches to engage with conflicts and identify those which are most effective to use
  • Use trusted frameworks to navigate through difficult conversations.

Those attending the workshop will leave with an effective conflict resolution toolkit.
