Conflict Management Training

Because other people don't share your views, occasional conflict is inevitable.

How you handle conflict is an all-important question.

Proper conflict management requires that you:-

  2. Tell them precisely what is wrong in non-emotional terms
  3. Give them a way out of the conflict situation
  4. Be objective and specific, not emotional and inflammatory
  5. Distinguish between reasons and excuses and have a different policy for each
  6. Know when to negotiate and when not to

The Edison Success Formula

How to create more energy

Energy is defined as the capacity to do work

Some people don't have sufficient energy to properly do their work.

How to generate more energy.

The EDISON success formula

All successful action can be described by the following five concepts:

  1. The Purpose: is the goal
  2. The Plan: is what you are going to do about the goal
  3. The Action: is the implementation of the plan
  4. The Feedback: is the results of the actions you take
  5. The Change: is the adjustment in the plans and actions, based on the feedback results you are getting

Learn the difference between feedback information and insult.

Negative feedback is part of the success formula.

But negative feedback should be constructive criticism: NOT destructive insult.

The differences between:

  1. Negative feedback.
  2. Derogatory insult.

In order to inspire others, get them hooked on the above five part success formula.

  1. Know your outcome
  2. Formulate your best plan in writing
  3. Take decisive action
  4. Gather and evaluate the feedback. Both positive and negative
  5. Make progress by continually adapting and evolving

Recognise that the success formula is a continuous process

Failure formula

  1. Indecision or unclear targets
  2. No written plan - wing it
  3. Procrastination - put it off
  4. Become disheartened in the face of set-backs and disappointments
  5. Stand still. Do the same thing this year as you did last year

Leadership Management Training Objectives Summary

In summary, our management training focuses on the six essential leadership management skills, namely:

  1. To set and achieve goals.
  2. To communicate clearly.
  3. To manage time and prioritise work.
  4. To manage conflict and handle difficult people.
  5. To create and sustain a positive mental attitude, especially during tough times.
  6. To inspire others and create a positive, productive atmosphere.

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 informative, with lots of thought provoking questions to think on after. The trainer's presentation was well produced and slick. NO excess content.
