Resolving conflicts in a positive manner is one of the most valuable skills nowadays


According to studies, 85% of employees deal with conflicts at work at some point, and 30% deal with them almost constantly. Up to 385 million working days are spent per year dealing with conflicts in the US alone.

The consequences of poor conflict management are massive, and can be irreparable: project failure, attrition, decreased cooperation, demotivation… Productivity, employee engagement, and the reputation of the organization are at risk whenever a conflict arises, and this is happening every single time people have a disagreement caused by different beliefs, opinions, or ways of working.

This is especially true in tech environments, where the gap between business and tech makes communication and collaboration difficult.

Developing the right communication skills, from active listening to strategic verbal and non-verbal communication, along with preparing a structured action plan, are key to handle conflicts effectively. You will be saving money, increasing productivity and motivation, empowering your staff, improving their work experience and cross-collaboration, and reducing turnover. You will also reduce risks by preventing potential aggression or violence.


At the end of this training, you will be able to:
  • Understand the different types of conflict and their consequences
  • Improve active listening and negotiation skills
  • Choose appropriate communication style
  • Put validated techniques and processes in practice for managing conflicts effectively
