Live, virtual, remote-online training course
This live online workshop is designed for managers that need the skills to manage effectively difficult mediations and to handle the behaviour of challenging colleagues. The role of the mediator is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at an outcome that both parties are happy to accept. Mediators avoid taking sides, making judgements or giving guidance. They are simply responsible for developing effective communications and building consensus between the parties. The focus of a mediation meeting is to reach a common sense settlement agreeable to both parties in a case.
COURSE AIMS & OBJECTIVES
In developing the course content we place emphasis on empowering staff that have a range of skills and experiences to develop greater quality in their work and increase productivity. The training will focus on the following:

- Use mediation to resolve workplace conflict
- Prepare effectively for a mediation
- What process to follow
- Deal with conflict in the mediation itself
- Handle stalemate situations

What is mediation and how can it help to resolve conflict
Delegates will learn how to recognise situations that require a mediation approach and how mediation skills can be used to resolve workplace conflict.
Recognising assertive, aggressive and passive behaviours
Delegates will able to recognise passive, aggressive and assertive communication and body language. We will also show how to reduce potential conflict by adopting assertive behaviours.
Managing internal dialogue
Delegates will examine how they are able to manage their internal dialogues to enable them to develop self-confidence when faced with difficult situations. Becoming adept at establishing sound inner dialogue will help you if you feel intimidated by the customers or colleagues; when you have to make an immediate statements or responses; or if you have an ongoing problem to resolve.
Effective communication skills
Delegates will learn how to master the elements of verbal, vocal and visual communication and how to use them to enable you to assertively persuade, influence and control others. As we examine visual and vocal images and how they impact upon communication, delegates can assess their own presentation styles and maximise on their strengths as a presenter.
Preparing for effective mediation
Delegates will learn strategies that will increase their self-confidence and enable them to plan for a successful mediation. Delegates will also learn tips and techniques for assertive delivery; what to say and how to respond to typical situations.
Maintaining control in mediation meeting
Delegates will learn strategies which will enable them to pre-empt conflict within a meeting; quickly assess the situation; verbalise it without confrontation; and manage the meeting effectively.
Dealing with hostile, angry and aggressive people requires different strategies and techniques. Delegates will learn how to handle difficult situations and maintain control in a calm and professional manner.
Handling objections and rejection
The ability to deal with objections and opposing views is an essential skill to master. We will focus on how delegates can control communications so that they are able to deal with all objections calmly and confidently. We will cover; understanding the types of objection; dealing with objections effectively and keeping control.
