Key Learning Outcomes


This workshop is titled Conflict Resolution 4 Wellbeing as it focuses on both issues and activities around conflict and enhancing wellbeing at work. Conflict is a normal part of working in groups, community, business. The key question is how we deal with conflict and ensure that it doesn’t escalate into abuse or workplace bullying. It is essential that management and employees learn basic skills in understanding the nature of conflict, conflict resolution, communication, truthfulness, balance, laughter, clowning as positive psychology and fun to empower people to deal effectively with problems positively as they arise. Afterall, we are all responsible for healthy and happy workplaces.

The workshop design is based on: critical thinking, collaborative activities, mind mapping and approaches to solving problems and exploring proactive ways to sort out and solve conflicts. The focus on wellbeing is essential as an individuals sense of happiness and self understanding has an impact on how they deal with conflict and indeed the promotion of wellbeing at work.
