Who should attend our Mediation Skills Training Course

Whether you are a HR practitioner, manager, CEO or a member of staff that engages with customers on the front line, this course is perfect for you. This course gives delegates many of the necessary transferable skills to have better conversations and when necessary to support with conflict. This course is especially good for those wishing to integrate structured mediation skills into their existing roles.

Many people are unsure about how mediation skills can support them at work. Mediation skills can be used in multiple job roles including doctors, health and social care staff, teachers, local authorities, police and ambulance services etc.

How would our Mediation Skills Training benefit your organisation

Conflict within every occupation is natural. It is not conflict that is the barrier but how we handle this conflict, that can make or break the reputation of a company. This training supports better conversations and creates healthier workplaces as employees and customers feel supported.

Managers are more equipped and confident in handling disciplinaries and grievances after having mediation skills training, but these mediation skills are also a cost saving mechanism as you settle disputes and conflict much more effectively and quicker than escalating disputes to litigation.

These mediation skills reduce toxic environments, harmonise work forces contributing towards increased productivity. Additionally mediation skills increase positive communication, which also aids the retention of employees further saving time and money.
