Conflict Management Course

The Conflict Management Course is based on Future Institute's 6 step conflict resolution model that can be applied to any position or level within the business. It outlines the fundamental skills that are used to identify, respond and resolve a conflict whilst providing the tools, knowledge and techniques to reduce conflict in the workplace.

Overview

Conflict in the Workplace

Conflict in the workplace left unaddressed can cause major problems in the long run for a business. A ‘once collaborative’ workforce can turn toxic, ending in divided teams, decreased productivity and an increase in employee turnover.

Conflict does not only negatively impact those involved but also those working around them, affecting the overall team dynamics.

Small disputes / issues can grow into ticking time-bombs, if left untreated, and can end in verbal or physical confrontation.

Knowing how to address conflict in a healthy and positive way is an important skill for all employees and managers to hold, and can help to protect and strengthen an effective, cohesive workforce.
