Conflicts are unavoidable in the normal course of the working life. Whether it is about subject specific differences, competition amongst colleagues or disagreements with the supervisor – there are plenty of potentially explosive situations.
Dates: Thursday, May 20, 2021 & Thursday, May 27, 2021
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. CET
Location: Remote via Zoom
Trainer: Dr. Imke Lode
Workshop Overview: It is not difficult to deal with conflicts in a constructive manner and to solve them before they grow into a substantial problem. If conflict is neither ignored nor allowed to escalate into a personal power struggle and the own as well as the others’ motives are reflected upon, one can act consciously instead of only reacting emotionally. This way there is a chance of finding a solution with which all parties are satisfied.
This workshop conveys fundamental knowledge about dealing with conflict and trains the powers of observations as well as negotiation skills. The participants learn to better judge the impact of their behaviour and to develop strategies for solving conflicts.
Participants will improve their conflict solving capabilities by:
- understanding the stages of conflict escalation
- reflecting their own style of dealing with conflicts
- acquiring practical tools for conflict resolution
- developing Win-Win solutions
