New online training course on Conflict Resolution. Since we can’t prevent conflict, the most important thing is to learn *how to handle or manage it *in productive ways. What is critical for resolving conflict is developing an understanding of, and a trust in, shared goals. However, there are several strategies for coping with conflict. Knowing when and how to use these techniques can make you a more effective leader.
The training is split in two main parts: *“dealing with difficult people*”, for those who find themselves on an complicated environtment when individuals are key part of the success of our projects, and “*getting along on the workplace*”, for those others who have to work together with the same persons for a long period, on the same office, on the same projects and activites. We will go in deep on many topics that you later will be able to put in practice on your daily work.
Course is given online on a virtual classroom. Detailed information can be seen at :
The main topics you will learn are:
• Recognize how your own attitudes and actions impact on others
• Find new and effective techniques for managing negative emotions
• Develop coping strategies for dealing with difficult people and difficult situations
