How Important is Workplace Conflict Resolution Training?
For companies, conflict can make a significant negative impact on the bottom line. Research on workplace conflict has shown how prevalent conflict can be, how it can affect productivity and profits, and how it might even lead to costly legal and financial damages from both customer- and employee-related lawsuits. Thus, workplace conflict resolution training is imperative not simply to defend against potential damages, but also to create a happier, more productive working environment.
For individuals, we ought to remember that close relationships are the number one driver of life-long happiness. And one of the primary drivers of close relationships is the ability to communicate effectively and resolve conflicts quickly with close friends, family, and loved ones. Whether you have to deal regularly with problem-oriented family members or you simply want to deepen your relationship with a friend or significant other, learning conflict management skills is a life-changing experience. Hence, workplace conflict resolution training is is not only important for acute problem-solving situations, but also for overall improved quality of life.
Why Invest In Workplace Conflict Resolution Training?
There are several great reasons to invest in workplace conflict resolution training both for your company and your employees.
Develop Ways to Avoid Workplace Conflict
Even a small conflict within the workplace can affect workflow due to stress, which can quickly result in missed deadlines and botched projects. The most efficient way to avoid conflict-based damage is to have a plan that helps stop conflict before it starts. Fortunately, Pollack Peacebuilding’s conflict resolution workshop has just the tools your team will need in order to stop workplace conflict before it starts.
Give Your Team The Tools to Resolve Workplace Conflict
Some conflicts can start so quickly, that they are almost impossible to contain. A fresh conflict, especially one that has not been contained despite managerial efforts, can cause major problems, which is why your team needs the tools to diffuse the situation effectively and safely before more damage can be done. At Pollack Peacebuilding, we offer conflict management training right alongside our conflict prevention because we understand that, sometimes, conflicts arise despite even the best de-escalation techniques. This is why our program offers a viable way to deal with an existing conflict for all employees in a way that is proactive and helps manage stress for all involved.
Keep Up with Changing Work-Culture
In the wake of calls for cultural diversity and the #MeToo movement, it is wise to update your work culture and to ensure that everyone feels safe and accepted. Because conflicts can get personal, individuals often get inappropriate, which is something that you don’t want in the workplace.
Create a More Effective Team
In addition to arming your employees with tools to combat future conflict, the workshops at Pollack Peacebuilding are geared towards optimizing communication and cooperation. Giving your team a chance to bond and to care for one another on a human level will not only help prevent conflict but will also facilitate future projects and help decrease stress which will create a more effective response in the face of the unexpected.
