Workplace Conflict Resolution is something that is often avoided through lack of confidence. Most of us feel feel that we aren’t very good at conflict resolution, and think we are under-skilled in resolving conflict and workplace disputes (surveys show).

Disagreements can drag on longer than they need, and frequently escalate to cause more serious conflict and other problems. In fact, with a little guidance, people find that conflict becomes much easier to manage. What’s more, we all possess the skills, and when we put them together in a certain way conflict avoidance is replaced by constructive conversations.

I offer staff training and coaching to help individuals and teams identify and strengthen their conflict management skills. so that they can intervene sooner and more productively, resolving conflict before the dispute affects morale or performance.
