Contrary to popular belief, conflict in the workplace can be a positive thing and even a catalyst for personal growth if managed well. Left unchecked however, even minor disputes can spiral out of control leaving your team divided and customers feeling frustrated and unheard.
Conflict is both natural and inevitable and in this course you will explore how to turn these experiences into something constructive. You will identify when conflict might occur and develop a range of techniques that you can use to diffuse tension and affect a positive outcome.
This course is part of our Leadership Development Course Bundle.
This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to better understand how to manage workplace conflicts, create conflict resolution, and improve their confidence in conflict situations.
