Conflicts are a natural part of business life and also the biggest threat to effective collaboration. According to a study by CPP Inc, each employee spends about 2.1 hours every week dealing with conflicts which results in the loss of productivity and efficiency. In fact, one of the most common reasons employees leave a job is due to unresolved conflicts in their workplace.
To improve success and ensure sustainability, teams need to understand conflict and manage them. However, a common issue in many organisations is that most employees and managers lack conflict management training.
If managed appropriately, conflict can increase interpersonal relationship satisfaction, creative problem-solving, and improve overall efficiency, creativity, and profitability. On the other hand, mishandled conflicts will cause organisational inefficiency, reduced productivity, and stymy innovation.
By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
- Understand the importance of effective conflict management;
