Creative Conflict Resolution
This course takes delegates through the skills required to deal with conflict in the workplace, whether between individuals or groups of people. Much of the focus is put on how we react to and behave in conflict situations and how this will impact on others. Particular emphasis is put on how conflict may be dealt with at early stages before it reaches crisis point, employing such skills as assertiveness, negotiation and mediation.
