Handling Workplace Anger and Conflict
Why is it important to handle workplace anger and conflict effectively?
The workplace can provoke anger and conflict, as you work with people with different values, beliefs, objectives, priorities and behaviours.

Anger, whether it is your own or someone else's, can work for or against you. You need to know when anger can be beneficial, and when it starts to become unhealthy and destructive.

Conflict, usually (but not always) the cause of anger, has its value in a workplace setting. If managed properly, conflict can bring people closer together and foster better working relationships.

However, if it is not well managed, resentment and anger can arise. If left to fester, these can have a negative impact on performance results and the health of individuals.

What do you gain from this one-day workshop?
This programme discusses the various ways of looking at anger and conflict, and how to manage them to avoid workflow disruption and create positive results.

You will gain a better understanding of what triggers your anger. More importantly, you will gain the tools to manage your own anger and make it work for you and your team.
