These Problems Can Be Reversed

People CAN learn to handle conflict better.

People CAN learn to understand each other.

When they DO learn, the company's productivity increases.

When they DO learn, the individual and their families benefit too.


Conflict Training Helps

Understand conflict

Conflict is sometimes obvious, but not always. It is important to understand what is happening, whether conflict exists and where it comes from.

Learn to listen

So often, conflict develops and escalates because people don’t listen to each other. When people listen properly, many problems disappear.

Learn to Respond

Once you understand someone is distressed, how do you respond? The right response can solve the problem - an important skill to learn and practice.

Learn to Negotiate

Most conflict requires some negotiation to develop solutions. Working for Win-Win solutions allows both parties to accept the outcome.

Challenging People

15% of people have personality styles that can be challenging especially during conflict. Understanding the challenges can create solutions.

Self Reflection

Reflecting on interactions, relationships and yourself can change perspective and suggest a different, more successful approach.
