Conflict in the workplace is inevitable – with team members, colleagues, with suppliers, with clients. “Leaving it to resolve itself” will often have a detrimental effect on personal and team morale and performance. Managing conflict effectively will obviously improve relationships and teamwork capability – other benefits include greater synergy, better results, less chance of good staff leaving, the list goes on! This course will help you to identify causes of conflict at work, then choose from a range of strategies to resolve them. We will also explore conflict as a healthy option, to produce positive change, which may lead to unity and promote stronger working relationships.
This course is designed initially for team or project leaders, although the principles, strategies, tactics and skills can all be used when conflict arises with customers, suppliers or other stakeholders. The course will therefore have wide appeal and value to many people in a range of situations.
