Preventing Conflict Escalation

Can conflicts be de-escalated?

The answer is yes. It is challenging but not impossible.

There are three main phases in managing conflict: conflict de-escalation, conflict intervention, and conflict recovery. In this course, we will focus on conflict de-escalation.

We do this by setting the climate of shared vision, shared values, trust, relationship, learning and recovery. When the environment is conducive, conflicts will be much easier to manage and resolve.

At the end of this course, you will become a better conflict manager by:

  1. Getting people to embrace a shared vision
  2. Becoming a role-model to practice the values you espouse
  3. Building a climate of trust
  4. Learning how to nurture relationships
  5. Learning how to recover from conflicts
  6. Developing skills to ensure that conflicts stay at problem-solving levels despite the differences in perceptions
  7. Knowing when to get help when conflicts become irresolvable and intractable
