In your work, are you called upon to:

- Talk with clients about how they manage either professional or personal disagreements?

If you answered “yes”, then you will benefit from developing communication and conflict coaching skills! A “conflict and communication coach” works one-on-one with someone struggling with a conflict or disagreement. The “coach” helps the person in conflict:
- Talk through the conflict issues.
- Better understand the situation.
- See things in a new way.
- Brainstorm options for managing the conflict or issue.
- Learn conflict management skills.
This highly interactive training will be led by conflict coaching expert and scholar Dr. Tricia Jones.
