Background on Navigating Conflicts
Conflicts are a natural and normal part of everyday life – they form in our close relationships, in our workplaces and on an international level. Conflict is inevitable and the outcome doesn’t have to be negative.
By completing this course, you will get introduced to the art of navigating conflicts and how you can help your team use them as a growth opportunity rather than a threat. You will learn effective models that will help you make sense of conflicts and structured approaches to map and mediate conflicts to avoid the breakdown of relationships.
The course is composed of a mix of instructional reading texts, resources, practice recommendations and interactive quizzes, which aim at stimulating different parts of our brain and thus help learn more and retain the learning longer.
