Course Overview

This course is created, owned, and trained by its original creator,  Ms. Swing Goh. Learn from the original creator.

Generally, most people try to avoid conflicts because they lack basic conflict management skills. Rather than react to conflict on a purely emotional level, learn to manage disputes and disagreements positively and proactively. We are after all in the business of building relationships!

Employees today need communication skills that engage them both personally and professionally. They want to be treated as individuals, not just another transaction. This high energy 2-day workshop defies the conventional methods of “dos and don’ts” of communication 101 training.

Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to:

  • understand your own conflict patterns and learn to “read” conflicts
  • Improve your communication and interpersonal skills
  • Practice effective conflict management methods depending on workplace relationships
  • Develop coping strategies and your coping style
  • Lessen conflict between colleagues and repair damaged relationships

This workshop is suitable for anyone who needs to interact and work with stakeholders and is keen to improve their conflict management skill.

Learners are guided through the topic with a combination of mini-lectures, group activities, discussions, hands-on exercises, games and Q&A sessions in this interactive workshop.
