Managing Conflict

Conflict is common. Everyone has different interests, opinions and agendas. In addition, common miscommunication can easily lead to tension and conflict. If unaddressed, it can be detrimental to relationships, workplace productivity and sense of well-being.

This conflict management training course will help you recognise the early signs of conflict and give you tools to effectively deal with it. You will feel confident to manage difficult situations and turn them into positive outcomes.

Conflict Resolution Coaching – one-on-one

We regularly deliver one-on-one sessions devoted to managing conflict situations.

After identifying the issues we systematically work with  the coachee towards building skills and behaviours that assist in identifying, managing and resolving conflict. Sometimes we achieve our goals in an individual session. Sometimes we utilise a number of sessions to achieve satisfactory results.

Some of our conflict management training facilitator-coaches are Organisational Psychologists, who are trained in helping people understand deep-underlying drivers of behaviour.

Conflict Mediation

Our expert mediators are highly skilled in working with you to resolve workplace conflict situations. Our professional mediators assist participants in identifying the issues and the root causes. Through a coaching style of mediation, we will help participants and organisations resolve disputes.

With the recently introduced Work Health and Safety legislation, employers have the obligation to protect their employees from conflict, bullying and harassment. Early intervention will help employers avoid costly and unnecessary escalation of conflict in the workplace. Our mediators will help ensure a safe environment for employees and thereby improve morale, productivity and your bottom line.

Conflict Management and Resolution Group training

We deliver in-house conflict management training courses in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and Darwin and country areas.

We are able to tailor to any needs relating to conflict management programs. Some examples of how we have customised programs:

Half-day or even shorter Conflict Management Skills workshops: Skill Shots

Because everyone gets busier and busier, we deliver shorter and sharper conflict management training sessions. We will be able to build a higher level of skill and confidence in a full day compared to in a two-hour session. Nevertheless, we may be able to focus on your most important objectives and deliver a program as a Skill Shot. A Skill Shot is a short interactive presentation or workshop.

We are also happy to discuss combining multiple conflict management training sessions of varying durations.

Tell us about your goals and we’ll design a program to achieve your critical outcomes, often at no or limited customisation costs.

Examples of tailored conflict management training programs

Conflict Management Skills for Managers

Dealing with conflict at work instead of avoiding it is one of the big challenges for managers, frontline leaders, supervisors and team leaders. Hardly anyone likes it, but facing and resolving conflict is a core skill.

In this Conflict Resolution skills for leaders training program for managers, we are able to include:

  • recognising conflict as an opportunity
  • understanding and clarifying needs
  • dealing with emotional behaviours
  • overcoming fear and resistance to conflict
  • creating the right environment for dispute resolution
  • having difficult and challenging conversations
  • mediating in conflict.

Dealing with Difficult People at Work

No workplace is without unreasonable and difficult people. We can tailor and facilitate a workshop that develops the skill, confidence and courage to deal with them.

Such a program would typically include:

  • identifying signs of conflict and proactively managing them
  • recognising underlying needs
  • choosing your response instead of reacting
  • deflecting aggressive people
  • demonstrating assertive behaviours
  • learning to unwind and refocus after a confrontation

A specifically tailored program may include:

  • understanding what causes customers’ difficult behaviours
  • keeping your cool under pressure
  • using listening skills to get the information you need to help your client
  • maintaining a positive state of mind
  • diffusing aggressive behaviours

Dealing with Angry and Aggressive People

Some professions attract a high level of aggression from people. Examples are Parking Inspectors, Compliance Officers, Public Transport Drivers and Ticket Inspectors, Security Guards, Police Officers etc.

Staff deal with frustrating and stressful situations and it is hard not to be provoked by emotional and challenging people. For these professions we offer training programs delivered by specialised psychologists.

Sessions typically include:

  • identifying people’s emotional triggers and those of yourself
  • not taking behaviours personally
  • make strategic withdrawals and change tactics
  • short-circuit automatic reactions and use proactive strategies
  • remaining positive under tough conditions
  • deflecting aggression and anger
  • dealing with personal abuse or potential violence
  • addressing behaviours, not the person
  • confidently and assertively managing difficult situations
  • not taking work problems home.
