Skills for Conflict Resolution
Research is an activity in which conflict often arises, sometimes productively but at other times less so. Conflict is an inevitable consequence of change and development, often feared and much misunderstood. This workshop will promote a constructive approach to help participants to view conflict in a positive way and to be better able to respond effectively when in a situation of interpersonal conflict. The aims of the workshop are:
* to improve understanding of the conflict
* to explore two frameworks, which can be applied usefully to conflict situations;
* to develop a reliable approach which can be used for effective conflict resolution
This two-day workshop will include reflective enquiry, group discussions and role play. Two well-established theoretical frameworks will be used to explore the conflict process. These are:
* Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
* Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)
Participants will develop awareness of their own preferred conflict handling style and will develop their negotiation skills that may be applied to real life situations after the course.
This course is particularly well suited to those students wishing to develop communication, networking and teamworking skills and their personal effectiveness.
