Conflict Management

Course Overview

Conflict Management provides staff members with an understanding of conflicts; what causes them, how they can be managed and ultimately how they can be prevented.

You will learn essential communication skills to enable them to deescalate potential aggressive situations and how to also support those affected by bullying. The course is designed to suit all staff so as to ensure a safer working environment and positive attitudes.

The course aim is to give participants’ more understanding as to the background of conflict and how their own contribution during such an altercation can either calm or escalate a confrontation. Both verbal and non – verbal body language can have a great impact on a situation and you need to be aware of what you are saying and doing.

The course is designed to allow people to learn and practise key skills to build their confidence whilst being able to maintain composure whilst de-escalating customer conflict.
