Resolving Conflict

Field service technicians and engineers are often lone workers but often they also have to work in field service teams – particularly on installations and complex issue resolutions. Invariably they are always working in highly pressurised situations and sometimes frictions can arise as a result. In this course we explore how you as a manager can help resolve conflict should it ever arise within your team. 

Course Description:


At best, workplace conflict stifles communication and productivity. At its worst, tensions escalate to aggression and bullying. That’s why it’s important to address conflict quickly.


In this course, you’ll learn common sources of discord and some typical responses to it. You’ll also discover techniques to resolve conflict, address anger, and stop abusive behavior.


Differences between teammates actually demonstrate a diversity of strengths and ideas. Learning to bridge contrasting perspectives with empathy and understanding are key to your team’s productivity and effectiveness. 


In this course we cover: 


  • Common Causes of Conflict in the Workplace
  • Understanding How People Deal With Conflict
  • 6 Steps to Mediate Conflict Between Employees
  • Dealing With Frustrated or Angry Employees
  • A Manager’s Guide to Dealing With Abusive Behavior
  • Conflict Resolution Tips and Techniques
