Seminar schedule: Conflict Management Training

day 1

09:00 – 9:30

Introduction: What is a conflict? Which types of conflict exist?

This is about the right definition of a conflict and about different types of conflicts such as conflicting goals, middle conflicts, value conflicts, power conflicts, role conflicts and many others.

9:30 – 9:45

Which phases undergoes an ideal-type conflict?

One must know typical stages of conflicts in order to evaluate in which phase the conflict is and in order to use constructively adequate conflict resolution strategies.

9:45 – 10:00

The different conflict personalities

Some see a conflict as a competition, others as an opportunity, and others as a circumstance to avoid. This session is about the different conflict characters.

10:00 – 12:00

1. Conflict simulation with each participant and analysis of the individual conflict resolution style for each participant

The first conflict simulation is about the participant playing with the trainer an imaginary conflict situation and applying the learned conflict theory directly to the case (with video feedback).

12:00 – 12:15

The different perspectives on a conflict

Conflicts always have a negative connotation in our culture. It’s about finding different perspectives on the subject.

12:15 – 12:30

Communicative enhancers of conflicts and de-escalation rhetoric

There are special classical formulations that further fuel the conflict, rather than de-escalating him. Of course you should know and avoid thesse formulations.

13:30 – 13:45

How emotional intelligence helps in conflict management

When emotions are strong, it becomes difficult to come to a solution during a conflict. Being able to control one’s own emotions and be able to read each other’s emotions is a crucial competence in conflict resolution.

13:45 – 14:15

Types of conflict management

There are many ways to deal with a conflict: as an initiator, as a conflict advisor, as a moderator, as a mediator, as a conflict manager in the narrower sense or as a mediator and decision maker. The different roles have different advantages — and each conflict requires a different role strategy.

14:15 – 14:45

The 5 best conflict resolution strategies

Regardless of the role involved in a conflict, there are five universal conflict resolution strategies that are helpful in all phases of conflicts.

14:45 – 16:45

2. Conflict simulation with each participant and analysis of the individual conflict resolution style for each participant

The second conflict simulation is about the participant playing a conflict situation with the trainer playing the role of a real counterpart (with video feedback).

16:45 – 17:00

How to improve sustainably?

Tips for participants to train independently their competence for conflict resolution after the seminar.

Conflict Management Training: your benefit

Your employees receive important theoretical input from the conflict trainer on types of conflict and conflict resolution strategies.

But the most important thing about the seminar is the 100% practical relevance for your company. In a preliminary telephone conversation you can describe classic conflict situations to the trainer – and we will prepare tailor-made conflict simulation exercises for you, in which we use video analysis to train your employees to recognize conflicts and resolve them professionally and to de-escalate heated situations quickly.

The conflict management training is ideal for companies that want to prevent conflicts and enable their employees to resolve a conflict independently.

FAQs about the in-house

Conflict Management Training

Europe-wide

Can you briefly describe the profile of your conflict management trainers?

Our conflict management trainers are nationally and internationally excellent speakers. Our trainers have received awards in various national and international speech competitions: TOP speakers, World Cup quarter-finalists, German champions in debating, finalists in various competitions.

With our 1-day conflict management seminar your employees will visibly increase their conflict resolution skills in just one day. For questions and further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@argumentorik.com.

How many people can attend an in-house conflict resolution training?

The fewer people participate in a conflict resolution seminar, the more possibilities the individual has to exercise. We recommend a maximum of 12 active participants, with an unlimited number of employees who can be present as so-called “silent observers”.

Our goal is to significantly increase the competence in conflict resolution of every employee. Your conflict trainer deals with the rhetorical challenges of each individual in a conflict situation in two detailed conflict simulations and feedbacks per employee.

Are the conflict simulations tailored to our company needs?

Yes! The conflict management seminar is explicitly geared towards the everyday practical requirements of your employees in conflict situations.

Every employee has the opportunity to complete two realistic conflict simulations on one seminar day. In these simulations, which are integrated in the seminar schedule, the goal is to put the learned conflict resolution strategies into practice immediately.

What is the relationship between theory and practice?

For years we have observed that the realistic conflict simulations have the greatest learning effect for our clients.

And that they regularly regard our simulations as the “highlight”. However, since it is your training, you can specify exactly the relationship between theory and practice.

That is why we attach great importance to practice. Further information on the content and exercises can be found in the seminar schedule.

Do participants also receive video feedback?

We offer to accompany the conflict resolution seminar with a camera. This method has proven to be very useful in the past and was found to be extremely informative by the participants, as the video enables a more detailed analysis the realistic conflict simulations.

If you or individual employees do not want video analysis, of course we can do without.

Which seminar variant is the best for my team?

We recommend the “classical training” (BASIC) if you would like to book a basic seminar on conflict management for your team, in which fundamental concepts of the topic are discussed.

The “tailor-made training” (PRO) variant is recommended if you want to deal with very specific conflict topics with your team and practice conflict situations and the basic knowledge is already available.

And we recommend the third variant, “tailor-made & online library” (PREMIUM), if you want to give your employees long-term access to valuable knowledge, with each participant having access to the Argumentorik Masterclas (over 30 online courses) so that each participant can develop independently.

You can combine the classic and tailor-made seminar into a 2-day event.

Please select now the variant that suits best for you.

Is it possible to conduct the training online (e.g. using Zoom or Microsoft Teams)?

Yes! We already have a lot of experience – and above all – very good experience when it comes to online trainings. Our preferred online tool is Zoom.

Of course we are flexible and use your preferred online tool successfully as well. Because in “digital rhetoric” it is not only a question of the technology, but also of a professional appearance in front of the camera.

Whether online trainings or face-to-face trainings: Write us your wishes and ideas in your non-binding request. We’ll find the best solution for you.

What is the unique selling point of the Argumentorik Academy?

In addition to our excellent presentation trainers, we offer every participant topic-specific online courses for sustainable knowledge transfer, e.g. the online course “Schwierige Gespräche im Beruf führen: Konfliktmanagement” (in German).

The Argumentorik Online Academy portfolio already includes more than 30 online courses on communications, business skills and personality. Please select now the variant that suits best for you.
