Conflict Management Coaching | Adelaide| 12 - 15 August 2024

Attend Resolution Institute's CINERGY® conflict management coaching workshop to become a trained coach who supports individuals to deal with conflict situations and build conflict competencies. 

Conflict management coaching brings together coaching and alternative dispute resolution in a powerful process which supports people to reach their goals in the way they manage conflict. It is useful as an early intervention strategy, in situations where parties may not be ready or able to bring the conflict into the open, or where there are habitual patterns of destructive conflict. Conflict management coaching can be used to prepare people to engage more effectively in negotiation, mediation, relational conflict and change. It can also assist in minimising the risk of psychological workplace injury.
