Whether between you and another person, you and the business or two people you work with, conflict is an unproductive emotion and has a negative influence on everybody involved. This course looks at techniques to successfully combat Conflict once it has arisen and to identify the initial signs in order that it can be prevented before it evolves in the first place.
Modern quality management systems involve individuals with a larger number and wider variety of other people in the course of their work than ever before, which inevitably means more opportunity for conflicts to arise.
For the individual, conflict is a major source of stress and can easily assume the sort of proportions, which overshadow everything else at work. It has knock-on effects for the organisation as a whole. It decreases productivity, upsets relationships, creates factions, causes absenteeism, prompts resignation, makes recruitment difficult, prevents creative thinking – in short, it wastes energy, time and money.
Each of us has a way of dealing with conflict that minimises the emotional trauma that we experience. Commonly we use the same strategy for many different types of situations, this has many disadvantages. Responding to conflict involves selecting the most appropriate strategy for successful conflict management. This requires an understanding of the ways the disagreement can be approached.
An autocratic, coercive management style can soon leads to a lack of moral and possible action against the manager. Modern managers negotiate with their staff and help them negotiate with each other. Sadly, many management development programs fail to show managers exactly how to mediate between employees.

All staff who would benefit from helping others to resolve interpersonal differences at work.
