Conflict Resolution Strategies and Techniques
DATE: October 25, 2017
TIME: 8:30am-5:30pm
VENUE: Holiday Inn and Suites Makati

Seminar Description

Recent research findings have shown that interpersonal conflicts in the workplace are inevitable and cannot be avoided. Hence, supervisors must be keenly aware of the presence of these conflicts, and more important, take the appropriate interventions to successfully resolve these conflicts. Indeed, top management expects that their supervisors will create and maintain a conflict-free environment where their subordinates are focused more on achieving the desired individual work performance targets instead of being distracted with time-wasting conflicts.

This seminar will present to the participants effective strategies, methods, and techniques in identifying and resolving destructive interpersonal conflicts between subordinates in the workplace. Specifically, this seminar will focus on the proven approaches for supervisors to plan and conduct a series of highly sensitive mediation sessions to help their subordinates resolve their conflicts in a professional manner.
