Managing Conflict to Build High Performance Teams
Members: £49.00 + VAT
Non-members: £99.00 + VAT
09:30 - 13:00 St Helens Chamber

People have different viewpoints and, under the wrong set of circumstances, those differences can escalate to conflict. How you handle that conflict determines whether it works to the team’s advantage, or contributes to its demise.

It’s clear that conflict has to be dealt with, but the question is how: it has to be dealt with constructively and with a plan, otherwise it’s too easy to get pulled into the argument and create an even larger mess.

This course will provide participants with knowledge and skills that they can take back to the workplace to benefit themselves and their organisation. Benefits of attending will include:

• Understanding preferences when it comes to managing conflict and how this leads to strengths and areas for development. • Understanding conflict styles and the impact on your team and key stakeholders. • Understanding and appreciating that the various viewpoints involved in conflict are key factors in its resolution. • Learn how to resolve conflict when it does happens, and the ability to keep it healthy and avoid conflict in the day-to-day course of team working.
