We provide conflict resolution skills and conflict management training that has lasting impact and contributes to positive culture change within organisations.
Perhaps your need is for your teams & managers to learn and embed the skills required to handle disputes within the workplace?
Maybe you recognise that issues are not being dealt with due to a fear of conflict or the inability to address the problem and facilitate an agreed forward thinking outcome?
Possibly there is a major change in your organisation that has created a divide amongst your employees and management resulting in low motivation, high staff turnover or a negative impact on productivity?
Or do you feel that there is a conflict situation occurring that cannot be resolved through the resources within your organisation?
By fully understanding your requirements and how this is affecting you, your organisation, your clients and your staff, we devise a completely bespoke training or facilitation solutions that has the impact you need.
The temptation for organisations is to just look at the presenting behaviour and look for a spoken agreement without really looking at the deep level cause of the problem or recognising when a lack of alignment within the organisation can have an impact on staff morale and lead to unrest, distrust and a lack of belonging that has the danger of exacerbating conflict situations.
Yet if we simply look at the standard definitions of conflict we can see that there is so much under the surface of the presenting behaviour that the resolution needs to be at a deeper level as well:
Fear of not being understood clearly
Strong differences of opinion
An internal battle
Incompatibility of opinion and/or behaviour
Non communication between two individuals
Unwillingness to compromise
Internal anxiousness presenting in external stubbornness

Conflict Resolution and Team Facilitation
It is common for teams or individuals to go through periods of fluctuation or unrest.
People have different viewpoints, and under the right (or wrong!) set of circumstances, those differences escalate to conflict. Healthy and constructive debate is a component of high-functioning teams, and differences within the team often make diverse teams more effective than those made up of people with similar experience.
Understanding and appreciating the various viewpoints involved in the situation are key factors in its resolution. The human experience of conflict involves our emotions, perceptions, and actions and we experience conflict on all of these levels.
We work in the following ways to enable the resolution of differences and promote conflict resolution:
We look at the deep structure of the problem and it’s wider implications across the organisatione involved we enable them to agree a way forward and negotiate a win/win for both parties.
We help find a joint purpose and commonality of values so that a resolution is sought and encouraged by both parties
We identify the core beliefs that underlie the problem
By facilitating an understanding of the perception of the situation from both sides and then by allowing both parties to step into the other person’s shoes and respect each other’s viewpoint.
We teach them how to really listen to each other’s opinions, and step back from an emotional response enabling them to understand the intent as well as the delivery.
We expedite resolution by providing both sides with a means to recognise and then step away from the emotion of the situation to gain clarity and perspective.
Working with everyone involved we enable them to agree a way forward and negotiate a win/win for both parties.
Alternatively it may be that the relationship is not a good fit for either or both parties and the healthy and most effective resolution is a respectful parting of the ways. In this event we work with you to facilitate the positive conclusion of the relationship for both sides.
