Constructive Conflict Management

A workshop offered by the Human Resources Development

"Conflicts? I like it!” Who can say that with full conviction? Instead, conflict situations are usually perceived as unpleasant, stressful and disturbing. The potential for innovation and reorientation that lies in every conflict is rarely seen and utilized. In this seminar, common perceptions of conflict are critically examined and a constructive understanding of conflict is developed. Existing conflict resolution skills of the participants are uncovered and put into action. Methods to address conflicts constructively and to communicate and act professionally in disputes will be taught.
