Conflict Coaching: A Three-Day Basic Training, April 26-28, 2017 in Boulder, CO

Conflict coaching is defined as a set of skills and strategies used to support peoples' ability to engage in, manage, or productively resolve conflict. Conflict coaching is a powerful vehicle for clients to develop insights about difficult conflict situations that they might be in, which can lead to meaningful change. In this process, the conflict coach works one-on-one with a coachee experiencing conflict with another person. Conflict coaching enables the coachee to talk about the conflict with a neutral third party (the conflict coach), consider options for managing the conflict, and design an approach to working out the conflict with the other person. Conflict coaching can be used as a stand-alone process by mediators, HR professionals, or supervisors; or can be practiced with each of the parties in separate meetings during mediation. This course is highly experiential. Participants will have the opportunity to coach on real situations and to be coached under the supervision of experienced training coaches throughout the course with Common Ground Mediation and Coaching, LLC. Learn more here.
