‘Prevention is better than Cure’ - Building a Conflict Competence Culture

Conflict can have a positive outcome and provide a catalyst for growth and change once it is managed effectively. This can be achieved through early intervention by providing training to staff in how to manage inter-personal conflict.

I provide training to organisations in the following areas:

  • awareness of how they handle conflict

  • dealing with destructive conflict behaviours

  • alternative constructive behaviours

  • understanding what triggers individuals into conflict

  • effective conflict management

  • team building

Brian’s course content was excellent, so interesting and opened up new possibilities for practice. Also his presentation skills - listening, comments, explanations and handling of discussion made today altogether an excellent learning experience.
