Conflict is an inevitable part of the employment relationship, so it is important you have the skills to address issues when they arise. This course will enable you to resolve conflicts more positively, whether they are difficult phone calls, challenging meetings, or conflict between your teams.

Why mediation?

Mediation is a quicker, cost-effective means of resolving conflict based on mutual agreement. It allows people to resolve disputes in a more open and amicable way, helping those in dispute minimise conflict and come to an understanding.

The aim of mediation is to repair relationships, reduce the likelihood of disagreements getting out of control, and to generate better and longer lasting solutions. Through talking, listening and co-operation, mediation gives people the opportunity to heard, and air their grievances in an impartial environment.

The role of the mediator

As a mediator, you help facilitate communication where relationships have broken down, and build understanding to find ways of achieving solutions that suit all sides.
Mediators create a safe place for people to say what they want to say. They encourage openness, reflection and personal responsibility.
