External Conflict Management

Duration: 20 – 30 min

With almost 700,000 incidents of violence and 374,000 adults experiencing physical violence at work in 2017/18, there is a crucial need to train staff in conflict management to effectively deal with conflict situations; or to avoid such a situation from occurring or escalating out of control.

However conflict more-often-than-not does not include physical violence, but normally takes the form of a dissatisfied customer or client. And with multiple studies and surveys showing the negative effects that losing a dissatisfied customer has on a business, awareness of the different factors involved may assist in solving a dispute or preventing a negative outcome.
