Conflict Management Resolution is a course designed specifically to help candidates deal with conflict, aggression and violence they may face in their workplace. Workplace Violence represents itself in many different forms and does not always mean physical violence, it includes; bulling, verbal aggression, threats and harassment.

Workplace violence is estimated to cost organisations in the UK hundreds of millions of pounds in lost revenue, stress related employee absenteeism, reduced productivity and high employee turnover every year.

Conflict Management and Resolution training helps employees avoid conflict, manage it, reduce its negative effects, resolve it and progress towards a working environment free of violence.

Conflict Management and Resolution is tailored specifically for each individual client and is based on the specific needs of those attending. The course is designed for anyone working in an environment where they have direct contact with the public or sections of the community where conflict arises.

Our Conflict Management and Resolution courses look at the theory of managing conflict with a view to resolving it before it turns to violence. For environments where there is a higher risk of physical violence, we would recommend that clients also consider a course in Physical Intervention (PI) to provide employees with low-impact personal safety techniques.

Conflict Management and Resolution not only reduces the risk from aggression, harassment and violence it also has the added benefit that many employers find it improves the customer service skills of their employees. This added benefit can be a real boost to the business itself.

The course fee is £120.00 + vat (all inclusive of course materials, tuition & certification) per candidate. Discounts may be available where we train at our clients own premises.
