Managing Conflicts and Differences

INTRODUCTION
Conflict can cause lost time, resources, and efficiency in any work team. But when managed well, conflict can result in new ideas, more informed decision making, and better performance. But managing conflict effectively requires skill, knowledge and experience. These days every organization must train its employees to effectively manage conflict and resolve issues that block performance.

Conflict can have a positive effect, but left unchecked, the dangerous results of conflict can include damaged relationships, destroyed creativity and productivity, lost commitment and wasted resources.

By taking a number of conflict management tools, techniques and theories and putting them into practical situations, this Conflict Management training course aims to turn conflict into a productive force.
