Conflict Management Coaching Workshop

Conflict Management Coaching unites the fields of professional coaching and conflict management. It is a one-on-one process in which a trained coach assists people to effectively manage their interpersonal disputes and to gain increased competency in their conflict management skills. Conflict management coaching may be used in the workplace and a range of other contexts. There are also many applications of this process besides providing one-on-one coaching for clients who are aiming to strengthen their conflict intelligence. Conflict management coaching may also be used for pre-mediation, post-mediation and as an adjuct to conflict management training.

We provide our training face to face internationally AND we conduct virtual training.

CINERGY conflict coaching training provided me with excellent tools with which to pursue my own coaching practice. I found her workshop very thorough and the practical exercises provided great insight into how powerful the conflict coaching process can be. I found Cinnie’s knowledge, coaching and training approach inspiring and would recommend her workshops to all practitioners involved in conflict resolution.

The CINERGY Conflict Coaching training was comprehensive, cohesive and efficient. The trainers honoured the principles of adult learning and sustained an inclusive, supportive and respectful learning environment – complemented with just the right amount of fun. I now have a dynamic model that enables a formal, coherent approach to working with conflict constructively. Thank you.

Sandra Walden Pearson

I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic model you've created and shared. Since completing this course I have had profound professional and personal development and insight. The success achieved in dealing with workplace matters in this structured and competent manner has been astounding.

Annette Balshaw,
People & Culture Consultant

As employers move from a punitive approach to a restorative approach - conflict management coaching is a necessary tool for union representatives to assist their members in managing interpersonal conflicts. Conflict management coaching is something most representatives are already doing – this training helps with that process by giving you an excellent format to follow.
