Conflict Coaching

Description

COURSE OBJECTIVES • Learn the basics of conflict theory. • Discover how to use conflict theory to “coach” people experiencing conflict when mediation or litigation is not the answer. • Develop conflict management and coaching skills and techniques to use in your personal life and as a coach. This workshop will train you to “coach” people involved in a conflict: (1) assess the conflict situation; (2) examine the clients' views about conflict and how they typically respond to it; (3) prepare mentally and emotionally to approach the others involved in the conflict; and (4) develop a “plan of action” for addressing the conflict situation to achieve the optimal outcome. The format involves a lively mix of lecture; individual, small and large group exercises; and role-playing. This workshop is ideal for mediators, attorneys, social workers, human resources and personnel specialists, clergy, customer service representatives, life coaches, and others in the helping professions. The Advanced training (March 15 & 16) can be taken separately, or purchased at a package rate (call for cost information.)
