How we work

We begin by having conversations with the employer to identify the needs for the organization. We then undertake a needs analysis with the employees who will be attending the training (optional). On the basis of the needs analysis, we tailor each workshop to suit. Depending on the requirements it may be a half day, 1-2 day or the concepts covered could be broken up into several smaller training modules that can work in with a demanding schedule.

The training is interactive and engages participants to explore constructive ways of dealing with conflict. At the end of the training, each participant receives a Certificate of Achievement, which outlines the awareness and skills covered.
