Course Outline


There are a variety of ways of resolving conflict in the workplace. Ranging from where the individuals in conflict discuss the issue, or the line manager or HR will try to facilitate or broker a meeting to ‘clear the air’, to a full mediation usually undertaken by an external independent mediator.

During this session, we will look at the different approaches to resolving conflict in the workplace, and the skills required to facilitate a conversation between two individuals in conflict.

SME business owners, or anyone who manages employees or has responsibility for HR in their workplace
