Challenging interactions and conflict are common occurrences that can come in many forms, ranging from interpersonal conflict with colleagues through to challenging interactions with customers. They can have detrimental effects on physical and psychological health. Managing these interactions effectively can reduce the negative impact on ourselves and others.
SuperFriend’s Managing Challenging Interactions for All Staff course helps promote and build an understanding of why conflict arises, and provides strategies for how to manage conflict in the workplace.
This course provides a great introduction to understanding conflict, including the common causes and the impact that conflict can have at both the individual and organisational level.
Participants will learn about different conflict management styles and how they can be used in challenging interactions. Participants will be able to identify their own conflict management style and learn about strategies to successfully manage conflict and de-escalate challenging interactions.
The optional workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to practice and embed the online course skills, giving them the confidence to de-escalate challenging interactions and identify which conflict management style is best suited to driving better outcomes.
This course includes the following online learning modules:
- Introduction to conflict management
