- Take Control of Conflict at Work -

Course Overview

A recent study cited by the company Psychometrics found that 76% of respondents have seen workplace conflict result in verbal insults as well as psychological and emotional attacks. What about you? Have you found yourself concerned about having to work with a colleague who is stubborn, overly-opinionated or bossy? Or customers who raise their voice, get angry or are just plain unreasonable? 

While we would like to work in a conflict-free workplace, the truth is that conflict is part of life. However, there are many ways you can help to reduce situations that result in arguments and interpersonal conflict.

The Take Control of Conflict at Work training will show you how to do that by identifying the source of all conflict and teaching you how to handle and even prevent a lot of unnecessary conflict from occurring in the first place. If you want to know how to handle yourself and others, this training will show you how to do just that!

  • Getting a trainer to your location could be difficult or cost-prohibitive
  • The employees you want to train work from home or are part-time
  • You don’t have the resources to cover for the employees you want to be trained, so allowing them to the training online means they won’t need to leave their work areas
  • Your training budget is limited, and online learning is more cost-effective
  • You want your people trained in a wide range of skills this year,’s online learning provides much better value to get everyone involved in learning and developing themselves.
