what is a conflict?

What does the word 'conflict' actually mean? It comes from the Latin confligere, which means 'to collide' or 'to clash'. That is to say, something collides or clashes,—namely, the differences between people. According to the conflict expert Glasl, an interpersonal conflict is an interaction (i.e. the parties involved are connected and are usually dependent on each other in some way) in which incompatibilities are experienced by at least one party as an emotional impairment.

 

We pay special attention to the aspect of emotional impairment because that is what conflicts are about: feelings and emotions.

why conflict managementt?

Conflicts in the company have a negative impact on the performance and health of the employees concerned. Therefore, conflicts should be addressed and resolved at an early stage. Managers play a special role in conflict management. They should prevent negative consequences of conflicts for the company.

We offer conflict management workshops with a suitable mix of theory, practical examples, an exchange platform for the participants, and direct testing of the tools in the form of role plays.

  • If necessary, participants can bring in their own questions or topic requests.

  • Explanation of the term 'conflict' and transfer of knowledge about conflict types and conflict topics (theory).
