Why conflict resolution training is important

With around 85% of employees facing some kind of conflict at work and as much as 29% dealing with it regularly, negative conflict in the workplace can have far-reaching effects on staff and managers, including anxiety, stress, and depression.

With the right training, you can understand its importance and manage conflict in the workplace successfully. By using the tools and learning the techniques, you can quickly and efficiently resolve conflict in your team, improving workplace productivity, restoring harmony, empowering your team, and helping lessen potential conflict risks in the future.

Course aims

Whatever team size you manage, workplace conflicts can happen between anyone at any time, whether it’s cross-department staff, individual team members, or even staff members and customers. By learning the conflict and resolution skills needed, managers can understand how to resolve conflict effectively in the workplace.

Workplace conflict can cause harm to the close alliance co-workers might need. But if left unresolved, it could also affect a business’s professional reputation. With our training, managers will learn and improve their skills and gain the confidence needed to mediate, creating a safer, less hostile workplace for everyone.

Our Conflict and Resolution Training For Managers will look deeper into these areas and more besides, giving managers the skills to:

  • Understand how conflict in your team or workplace can start
  • Recognise the positives and negatives of workplace conflict
  • Identify team members who might be at risk of workplace conflict
  • Prevent workplace conflicts from happening or getting out of control
  • Effectively manage hostile flare-ups or continuing conflicts by using alternative dispute resolutions

James and Priscilla are wonderful. I attended a Positive Conflict training session in November and found it really insightful.It was an extremely useful afternoon with practical advice and a pragmatic look at office environment issues.
James & Priscilla visited us today to deliver Resilience in the Workplace training. The session was fantastic, and enjoyed by all. The day was incredibly interesting and very engaging, and I know everyone left having taken a lot away to use going forward. We will definitely be requesting some further training with Clearfocus Training going forward!

James and Priscilla were engaging and kept the course interesting using a mix of videos, music, activities and text content. They were both friendly and knowledgeable, especially in how to engage a mixed group of delegates with different roles and attitudes.They came on site for two days to run Effective Communication Training for 23 individuals, who all gave positive feedback at the end of each day, and felt the course was worthwhile and have learnt a lot from it.I won't hesitate to use Clearfocus training again, and will be in contact with James in the near future to plan more training across the wider Business of DHG.
