Resolution Manual

Overcome Chronic Conflict Workplaces

Are you always having the same argument with your colleagues?
Do you keep encountering the same problem or difficult personality type at work no matter what department or organisation you work for?

If the answer is yes then it’s time to stop using band aids on your problems and start applying conflict resolution methods to heal rifts permanently.
This manual takes you through the steps necessary to achieve long term resolutions to problems and conflict situations so that you are not dealing with them over and over again.

Improve your conflict resolution strategies by learning how to skilfully resolve conflicts and create a collaborative workplace. You no longer have to be content with avoiding, denying or compromising in conflict situations you can develop skills that will facilitate long lasting resolution and effective problem solving. End the destructive cycle of miscommunication, misunderstandings and personality clashes and foster collaborative relationships instead of competing adversaries.

Reduce the cost of conflict

Conflict is inevitable. Negative consequences as a result of conflict are not inevitable. Challenging or difficult clients, colleagues or employees do not have to lead to ongoing conflict if you are prepared to explore barriers to resolution.

Change your workplace conflict culture

Learn how to respond to non collaboration from others. Determine conflict responses and communication patterns that require intervention. Explore how to behave and communicate in a way that is congruent with your personal and organisational core values.

Learn and understand all the pathways to resolution

The Conflict Navigation Manual includes a wide variety of resolution tools as well as preventative measures and an in depth analysis of the contributing factors to workplace tension, stress and conflict. You can take a sneak peek at the Table of Contents and sample of the manual by clicking here.
