Conflict and Resolution Training
Our Conflict and Resolution training workshops are suitable for anyone wanting to gain or develop their skills to help build confidence in handling any conflict challenges in the workplace or in everyday life. By learning these essential skills, attendees can tackle and manage difficult or threatening conflict effectively, helping to resolve situations, reduce stress, and improve mental health.
Conflicts, however large or small, can happen in any workplace, whether your business has 5 or 500+ employees. And it can happen between a group of coworkers, individual team members – even between staff and a customer. By giving attendees the know-how, they can learn the positive art of conflict management and effective resolution in the workplace.
Conflict at work can damage relationships between co-workers, but it can also impact the reputation of a business. With effective training, delegates gain the skills and confidence needed to step in and intervene, creating a safer and less hostile working environment for everyone. Our Conflict and Resolution training workshops address these issues and more to give staff the ability to:
- Understand how conflict can arise in the workplace
- Get to know the negatives – and the positives – of workplace conflict
- Recognise who could be at risk of workplace conflict and its impact
- Use proven strategies to prevent conflicts from happening – or escalating – in the workplace
- Deal with flashpoints or ongoing conflicts effectively by using alternative dispute resolutions
In this inspiring 1-day conflict and resolution workshop, James and Priscilla both draw on their personal experiences and extensive knowledge of conflict in different areas. They focus on the importance of face to face communication in dealing with conflict in the workplace and how to overcome disputes, arguments, and disagreements, as well as understanding exactly how conflict can also bring a positive element to the workplace.
Delivered through an effective mix of presentations, personal experiences, interactive exercises, and discussions, the course content is specially adapted to suit the needs and learning abilities of everyone attending and will cover topics including:
Conflict resolutions and how to use them effectively
Effective tools developed to measure an individual’s response to conflict including the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
Recognising your own behaviours and how they affect others
Understanding the triggers and the importance of how they affect you and others in different ways
Understanding the point of view of your customer, colleague, or workforce
Switching to see things from another’s point of view is key to understanding conflict between others
The definition of conflict
People have many different definitions of conflict – they’re not all negative and we explore them
Learn where conflicts come from and understand the triggers
Environment, attitudes, and beliefs are just some of the things that can affect people and cause conflict
The fight, flight, and freeze responses
When it comes to conflict, these are the three stages we go through when trying to deal with it
The art of being a good listener
Patience and counselling can be effective tools in conflict situations
The importance of validating someone in conflict
Understanding someone’s situation and feelings, and knowing they have a right to feel that way
On completion of the course, each attendee will be given a personalised Conflict and Resolution training certificate which can be used for compliance and audit.
Why is conflict and resolution training important?
With figures reportedly showing that around 85% of employees face some kind of conflict situation at work, and as much as 29% have to deal with it regularly, the negative effects of conflict in the workplace can be far-reaching for staff, employers, and potentially, customers too.
But with the right training, workplace conflict can be successfully managed and its importance shouldn’t be underestimated. Giving you the tools and skills required, conflict can be dealt with quickly and effectively so it actually improves workplace productivity, restores balance, empowers your staff, and helps lessen the potential risks of conflict in the long term as well.
Our standard Conflict and Resolution training workshop starts at £50 per person (plus VAT) based on groups of up to 15 delegates.
