Learning Objectives
  • Participants will learn their own approach to dealing with conflict and understand how to become more effective in conflict situations.
  • Participants will learn specific steps to take when they are in conflicts.
  • Participants will learn how to turn conflicts into problem-solving conversations.
  • Participants will understand a conflict map to follow when they are leading discussions where conflict is present.
Methodology
Facilitators use a variety of training methods for each workshop, including large group discussions, individual work and reflection, assessments, small group discussions and exercises, case studies and simulations for role-play.  
 
This is an interactive workshop with a 40/60 split between concept/theory and practical application of skills discussed. Class size should be kept under 20, so each participant will have the opportunity to gain techniques for the types of situations they deal with or expect to deal with.
