Conflict resolution is the process of resolving a conflict or dispute by identifying and satisfying some or all of each side’s needs and addressing their interests.

The purpose of this workshop is to engage participants in a process of seeing conflict as an opportunity for growth, development, and enhancing business and other relationships, rather than approaching conflict with fear or simply avoiding it altogether. The workshop will include analytical and practical tips on how to resolve conflict, and how to manage conflict when resolution is not possible. Knowing how to manage and resolve conflict is essential for leading an organization, managing a department, building and enhancing your interpersonal relations within your workplace, your family and community.
