Description

Background

Wherever two or more parties come together, there is bound to be conflict. This is more significant in the implementation of projects and programs. A project’s timeline is fixed, and outputs are expected to be of standard quality. Conflicts can impact both or at least one of these important factors. Let alone the cost that it can incur on the project.  This course will give participants a comprehensive conflict resolution process that they can use and modify to resolve conflicts of any size. Participants will also be provided with a set of skills in solution-building and finding common ground.

Dealing with conflict is important for every organization, no matter its size. If a conflict is left unchecked or not resolved, it can lead to lost production, absences, attrition, and even lawsuits. In the conflict resolution workshop, participants will learn crucial conflict management skills, including dealing with frustration or embarrassment and using the “agreement frame.”
