The business world is made up of people and this means that we are constantly faced with the challenge of resolving conflicts. When skilled individuals understand how to deal with conflict and move through barriers, we can realize great synergy from different perspectives in the workplace.
Conflict is unavoidable and can be bewildering, upsetting and exhausting. Conventional business school management training tends to focus on quantitative capacities, rather than what are conventionally labeled the "soft skills" of communication and persuasion.
Based on the book Conflict Unraveled, this course teaches innovative, practical techniques suitable for organizations. It draws upon discoveries from the fields of brain research, primate behavior, linguistics, psychology and tactical non-violence. The participant will leave with a wide range of tools to manage conflict and promote change with a minimum of resistance, as well as with a better capacity to persuade and promote ideas.
