About this course

Do you avoid conflict at all cost? Do you deny conflict and pretend it doesn’t exist in order to keep the peace, only to find you have unwittingly created even more conflict than you might have initially imagined? You can run, and you can hide, unfortunately, you can’t escape conflict!

Relationship conflict is a given. It is as much about circumstances as it is about people. Workplace conflicts are important because we spend a large portion of our life at work, plus we sometimes bring our workplace miseries home with us. Conflict makes people feel agitated and distressed, and it can take a major toll on one’s health.
