Course Outline
Have you ever been in a conflict that you wished you could have handled better? We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our co-workers.

Conflicts that are ignored or resolved badly don't go away – they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on an organization are a loss of productivity, absenteeism and high turnover.
Conflict comes about from differences – in needs, values and motivations. Sometimes it is through these differences that we complement each other, but sometimes these differences result in conflict. Conflict is not a problem in itself – it is what we do with it that counts.

It is important that we do something because whether we like it or not, conflicts demand our energy. In fact, an unresolved conflict can call on tremendous amounts of our attention. We all know how exhausting an unresolved conflict can be. It is not always easy to fix the problem but a great energy boost can come when we do. This program teaches you the techniques for proper conflict resolution that will leave you feeling satisfied and content.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
Corey Atkinson was absolutely wonderful to spend the day with. From the moment that we entered the room, he'd set a positive, engaging tone that was maintained and honestly, grew, throughout the day. The training was thorough and spoke directly to the issues that we were hoping to overcome when speaking with Difficult Customers. This course caused us all to stop and think about how we may change, not the customer, and why those changes are integral to being successful in providing good customer service.
