Course overview

Conflicts are inevitable and can be regarded as a natural part of life. When conflict is not managed properly, it may result in wasted time, ill feelings and back-biting in the work environment. Energy, which could have been used for constructive purposes, is drained. This course shows you how unnecessary conflicts should be prevented and those that cannot be prevented, should be resolved in a constructive manner.
