Course description

Choice and Control: A Positive Approach to Conflict

Anyone working with others will experience situations where confrontations and conflicts occur. There will always be conflict. It is critical to our professional survival that we know how to analyze and respond to conflict situations and what communication skills to use to manage it successfully. A skillful manager or team member knows how to effectively deal with uncomfortable conflict situations so that they turn into comfortable and productive discussions that contribute to each person’s goals and objectives.

This course is designed to give participants the opportunity to focus on specific skills, tools, and techniques to strengthen and expand their ability to work creatively with all types of conflict and improve effectiveness in interpersonal relationships and negotiations. Throughout the two days participants practice applying skills, tools, and different approaches to their own specific conflict situations. A variety of individual, pair, and team exercises are structured to allow the participants to experience “real” scenarios and exchange constructive feedback on conflict style and skills.
