Conflict Resolution

Let’s face it, conflict is a part of life.  Most of us naturally avoid conflict and like to go along to get along.  But some of us, and you know who you are, just run the other way!  Conflict handled improperly can lead to stagnancy, lost relationships, lost time, and lost money.

Proper conflict resolution can help you retain that employee going through a rough patch, and in turn, save you time and money.  Improved communication and negotiation helps you iron out those details with vendors and contractors to ensure continued relationships and growth.  Excellent questioning and listening skills provide you with improved input from your team creating a greater contribution to excel at your mission. 

In this course, we will show you how to prevent uncomfortable conflict, address the conflict head-on, and turn it from a difficult situation into an opportunity.  We will practice these skills with you in a hands-on and secure environment, so you will be ready when you are called upon for action at work, at home, or anywhere in life.  You can take conflict and turn it into an opportunity for a win-win every time.

In this course, you will:

  • Learn to identify sources of possible conflict for conflict preparation and prevention
