About the Course

At work, people disagree. And sometimes these disagreements can develop into arguments; creating a conflict situation.

Conflict management is a way of resolving conflict early, by means of skilled communication and negotiation. We need to know how to nip the problem in the bud; and how to defuse the situation before it gets out of hand.
Do you handle conflicts well? Or not? Do you sometimes come on too strong? Or are you, on occasion, not strong enough? Some people are too passive.

The solution to conflict is to be a “rational conflict manager”. Use your REASON to resolve conflicts, not by using high emotion nor by attempting to run away and always avoid conflict.
If you want to learn how to be excellent at managing conflict situations, at work and at home, then you need to attend this extremely popular conflict course.

This one day Conflict management training is designed to demonstrate and teach correct conflict management principles: it is designed to help you to manage any conflict situation: It provides a reference point to enable you to deal with conflicts in a clear, rational, assertive, and non-aggressive manner.

Conflict Management Course Objectives

On this course, you will learn exactly how to handle conflict situations and difficult people. You will learn what to do:

  • If you believe that the conflicts may sometimes be based on a miscommunication
  • If you have to handle strong, confident characters that you find difficult to deal with
  • If you have to handle moody, emotional characters that you also find difficult
  • If you sometimes lose your temper and make the conflict situation worse - not better, by saying too much
  • If you leave it and just hope the situation will resolve itself
  • If you wait and wait and wait....and then let rip!
  • If you sometimes say to yourself “I know what I mean but I can’t explain it”
  • If you are unsure when it is right and when it is NOT right, to compromise
  • If any of the above descriptions fit you, then the course will be a benefit.

Benefits of this conflict management course

  1. You will feel more confident during all conflict situations.
  2. You will get the best possible result from the situation with the minimum fuss, in the shortest possible time.
  3. You will avoid all the expense, perils and emotional turmoil of a badly managed conflict situation.
  4. You will feel happy to handle conflict situations involving even the most difficult people.

Very useful and clearly explained with a good delivery and focused relevant analogies. The trainer's presentation: Clear, Interesting and informative.

Conflict Management Course Content

Conflict Management Training - AM

Resolving conflicts that may be based on poor communication. The need to act from professional principles, not by your feelings or mood.

In order to manage people properly, don’t act according to your emotions and your mood. Instead act according to a proper method.

The need for clear communication.

The conflict may be based upon miscommunications caused by unclear communication. Conflict resolution requires clear language, and the accurate use of words.

How to define your meaning and avoid unnecessary miscommunication.

There are many words that cause conflict due to their multiple meanings. It is important to clarify often quoted but ill defined words. Examples:

  • Fair – unfair.
  • Attitude problem.
  • Unprofessional.
  • Appropriate dress.

Remember that your conflict management skills boil down to your ability to get the words right!

Focus on what CAN BE DONE, not on what cannot be done.

Many people talk for too long about what cannot be done and why it cannot be done.

We need people to talk about what can be done and how it can be done.

Distinguish between legitimate criticism and cynicism - criticism is legitimate, cynicism is not.

How to distinguish between the legitimate complainer and the negative cynic.

How to improve your listening skills

Managing confrontational situations

Conflict is inevitable and could even be beneficial but ONLY IF it is managed according to correct conflict management principles. On this course, you will learn exactly how to handle conflict situations and difficult people.

Conflict Management Approaches

Four ways to approach conflict situations

  • By using the principles of "Reason" - YES
  • By getting angry and frustrated - No
  • By getting upset and tearful - No
  • By ignoring the situation and just hoping that it goes away - No

What are the principles of rational conflict management?

Method one: The quick method

  1. Your goal is to modify their behaviour - not win the argument
  2. "Nip it in the bud" technique
  3. Don’t use emotional language
  4. Use objective language
  5. Don’t attack their self-image. (ego or pride)
  6. Give them their clear way out of the conflict
  7. Ask them for a specific change in their behaviour.
  8. Distinguish reasons from excuses
  9. Positively reinforce any positive change in their behaviour

If face to face- then watch you own body language posture

  1. Appearance
  2. Touch
  3. Gestures
  4. Expression
  5. Eye contact
  6. Orientation
  7. Proximity

If working on the phone- then be aware of your own voice tone:

  1. Volume
  2. Pitch
  3. Pace
  4. Intensity of emotion

The need for praise and appreciation

The lack of appreciation may be the cause of a conflict situation

How and when to give praise and trigger a positive emotional response in the mind of the listener.

Practical exercises for the delegates to learn skills

Summary and action planning

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
  6. (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The course was very comprehensive and well presented. Lots of information and food for thought! The trainer's presentation was engaging, accessible and clear. Adapted to questions and very knowledgeable.
