Managing Conflict at Work (including post lockdown implications)

Delivered online using Zoom 10:00 – 13.00 (with break)

The extended period of lockdown and homeworking has inevitably impacted on people’s mental wellbeing and their relationship with work and often their colleagues. As we move into a new phase of blended working arrangements conflicts created by these factors and in some cases by the return to working in the office will need to be carefully and sensitively handled whilst maintaining the performance of the organisation.

This may mean increased cases coming to HR teams as well as the need to develop the skills of managers in enabling positive working environments to prevent issues arising and strategies and skill in resolving them when they do.

This workshop is intended to develop an understanding of how conflicts arise and develop and what practical steps can be taken to resolve them quickly and confidently.
