Many employers find that effective conflict management training has a positive effect on their business. Employees feel more empowered and less isolated, leading to lower rates of absence. “Difficult” customers feel more satisfied with their service, present fewer complaints and the organisation’s reputation benefits.

IBA UK offer three courses in managing and resolving conflict. Our experts emphasise what steps can be taken to defuse and de-escalate conflict. However, there will also be effective training on personal safety, enabling employees to protect themselves in the face of confrontational behaviour.

  • Level 2 Conflict Resolution>
  • HABC Level 2 Award in Conflict Management
  • HABC Level 3 Award in the Delivery of Conflict Management Training (QCF)
