One of the greatest challenges when mediating conflicts is helping parties to focus on the underlying needs, values and beliefs that form the foundation of the positions they have taken. Focusing on the underlying core interests can be a key step in identifying common ground for moving forward. Participants of a conflict resolution workshop will gain additional tools to facilitate positive interactions with others.
- Identify their personal styles and how they and others respond to conflict
- Appreciate the diverse ways individuals can experience and manage conflict
- Examine barriers to conflict resolution
- Learn to adapt to manage conflict in less than ideal situations.
Alnoor is a trained and accredited facilitator for Personality Dimensions (PD) workshops. PD is a human relations tool based on leading-edge research into human motivation and behaviour. PD helps to explain what motivates behaviour in people with different personalities.
Combine an introductory 3 hour workshop with either a Conflict Resolution or Team Building workshop to create an entire day of learning.
In an ideal workplace, we would all understand each other and get along, however in reality we see things through our own lens. Temperament theory gives us the tools we need to understand the purpose behind behaviours. When we communicate, we have ‘triggers’ that can cause unwelcome behaviour, leaving us feeling uneasy and perhaps stressed. Take the introductory workshop to recognize your own unique blend of strengths and qualities, and to appreciate others’ differences and use your knowledge of self and others to improve interpersonal relations and teamwork.
Personality Dimensions workshops themes can include:
- Leadership Development
- Work-Life Balance
- Career Building
Personality Dimensions' Learning outcomes always include:
- Recognize the different ways people act and react when experiencing conflict
- Increased teamwork
- Mutual understanding of team members’ motivations, skills and shortcomings
