Conflict Resolution  |  Collaboration  |  Expectations

Poorly managed conflict can create significant costs for organizations, negatively impacting engagement, productivity and profits. Much conflict cannot (and often should not) be avoided. Effectively managed, conflict can lead to creative insights and innovation that can benefit your organization.

Since some amount of conflict is inevitable—even healthy—in any organization, your goal must be to ensure that your current and future management staff have the skills they need to successfully manage conflict.

Participants will learn how to:
  • Recognize the difference between positive and negative conflict
  • Use powerful mental dialogues and physical techniques to manage their responses to conflict
  • Understand and apply five proven strategies for effectively managing conflict
  • Effectively disarm anger and aggression
  • Apply five easy steps for better negotiations

Conflict management is an ongoing challenge—and opportunity—for organizations, managers and supervisors. This program offers an evidence-based training option for learning new and honing current conflict management skills. Even experienced managers will benefit from the expert insights, shared experiences and group discussions delivered in this program.  

This seminar may be taken BY ITSELF,
or as
of the
Supervisory Management Certificate Program.
