This conflict management seminar increases the ability for conflict resolution of your employees. The in-house training developed for organizations from a wide variety of industries focuses on how conflicts can be resolved constructively and confidently. Each employee has the opportunity to participate in two realistic conflict simulations. And are able to put immediately the learned conflict theory into practice. The conflict management training is ideal for companies that want to prevent conflicts and enable their employees to solve a conflict independently.
Your employees receive important theoretical input from the trainer regarding types of conflicts, conflict resolution strategies, conflict strategies and types of conflict resolution. But the most important thing about the seminar is the 100% practical relevance for your company. In a preliminary conversation you can describe to the trainer classical conflict situations — and we prepare for you tailored conflict exercises in which we use video analysis to train your employees to recognize and solve conflicts professionally and to quickly de-escalate heated situations.

There are many ways to deal with a conflict: as an initiator, as a conflict advisor, as a moderator, as a mediator, as a conflict manager in the narrower sense or as a mediator and decision maker. The different roles have different advantages — and each conflict requires a different role strategy.

Your employees benefit from the Argumentorik concept which combines expressive rhetoric and impressive argumentation into a single unit.

How many people can participate in a conflict management seminar?
We recommend a maximum number of 12 employees, with an unlimited number of people who like to be present as so-called "silent observer". Our goal is to increase each employee's conflict management skills on one day. Our rhetoric trainer gives in-depth feedback on each person's rhetorical challenges after each exercise. A training with only 3-6 participants is obviously much more intense. By the way, at the end of the successful training everybody receives a certificate of attendance.
Are there practical exercises included?
Yes! Our conflict management seminar is explicitly tailored to the everyday practical requirements in conflict situations of your employees. Each employee has the opportunity to complete 2 realistic negotiation simulations. These simulations are integrated in the schedule of the seminar and are about putting the learned conflict resolution strategies immediately into practice. If you would like to book a tailored training, then please take a look at our in-house trainings.
What is the relationship between theory and practice?
We have been observing for years that the greatest learning effect of our clients lies in our realistic negotiation simulations. And that they regularly regard our exercises as the "highlight" of the seminar. That's why we put a lot of emphasis on practice and pay attention to a distribution of 20% theory and 80% practice. For more information, please take a look at the schedule.
Do participants also receive video feedback?
We offer to accompany the conflict management seminar with a camera. This method has proven to be very useful in the past and has been highly enlightened by our clients, as the video allows for a more detailed analysis of the 2 negotiation exercises. If you or individual participants do not want the video analysis, of course we can do without.
Is there a conflict management seminar as an individual coaching available?
In addition to our group seminars, we also offer a conflict coaching as an individual business coaching, on request also at your location or via Skype. You are welcome to contact us with your questions and concerns by phone on +49 89/13 94 36 38 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to you!
