Conflict Resolution



Avoid the consequences that conflict in the workplace can cause before it leads to more serious problems.

Conflict in the workplace environment can lead to multiple negative consequences. High staff turnover, absenteeism, excess sick leave, productivity problems and a poor company culture are just a few results of workplace conflict that is poorly handled. If conflict is not adequately dealt with, it can potentially lead to more serious HR and legal problems for an organisation. This course teaches the techniques to avoid the aforementioned negative consequences conflict can cause.
