Course Overview

TOP

Conflict is all around us, especially during tough business periods where resources are tight and tempers are shorter, but most people lack basic conflict management skills. Rather than react to conflict on a purely emotional level, learn to manage disputes and disagreements positively and proactively.

With this conflict management training, you will learn to recognize the causes of interpersonal conflict, and you will become aware of your emotional triggers to prevent explosive situations. You will learn new strategies of conflict management that will improve your communication performance and, ultimately, increase the success of your business initiatives.
