Due to the ever-increasing costs of conflict in the workplace, employers are increasingly turning to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as a solution. Employee conflict, labour disputes and discrimination claims in particular are increasingly common and employers need to take steps to stem the tide of conflict and lawsuits. Conflict resolution training is an effective means to accomplish this goal. It is also the tool used by professional mediators to resolve conflicts between disputing parties.
ADR seeks to resolve conflict by cultivating co-operation and understanding. It seeks to find a solution that allows both parties to win. Above all, it seeks to protect the relationship while solving the problem.
At the in-person sessions, a continental breakfast and catered lunch will be served each day of the workshop. Snacks, coffee and drinks will be available throughout the day.
All upcoming ADR Workshop sessions (except for the May 11-14, 2021 session) will be Virtual Instructor-Led using ZOOM technology. Using ZOOM, the program will continue to be interactive and engaging involving role plays, exercises, small group discussions and coached mediation role plays. We are limiting the session to 24 participants.
Practical and Interactive Training
At our conflict resolution training we offer intensive and interactive learning experiences for professionals and executives. You will participate in dynamic exercises and case studies, with two-way and coached feedback. The concepts and approaches you will learn have proven successful in the real world, and can be applied immediately to your conflict resolution or negotiation situation.
“The ADR Virtual Instructor-Led Workshop was excellent. The virtual role plays are an incredible way to learn new ways to negotiate and to approach problems. I also learned a lot during the lectures and from the instructor and coach feedback.”
