Learning how to manage and resolve conflict is a key skill for anyone who works in a team, communicates directly with customers or has a supervisory or managerial role. Resolving interpersonal conflict can be very empowering and should be a part of everyone's professional development goals.
This Conflict Resolution Course by PD Training provides techniques for individuals in an organisation to resolve workplace conflict and to build a common understanding and framework for working through challenging situations. The course was designed, after much research, to focus on the Win-Win Approach using the three critical skills of conflict resolution; Negotiation, Assertiveness and Persuasion.
These skills will enable the course participants to develop conflict resolution strategies for quickly and effectively recognising, resolving and preventing conflicts with others. Learn key skills like how to compromise and negotiate, finding the root cause of the issue, the importance of forgiveness, anger management strategies and de-escalating challenging situations.
This is a practical class that is suitable for all audiences and provides people with the tools that they can apply on-the-job (and in other contexts) the very next day.

-Anaesthetic Group Ballarat
"Joe was a wonderful trainer; at the very beginning of the session he made a list of all the things we, as a group wanted to get out of the day. After each training module, we would revisit our self-appointed 'learning outcomes' and tick off what the module covered. By the end of the day we had covered off each learning outcome over 3 times each. This method that Joe implemented not only gave us the power to steer our learning objectives, it also kept us on track and reinforced what we had learnt in a multi-faceted approach. I cannot sing Joe's praises high enough; I learnt so much from his guidance and he ran the session in a way that created a very safe and collaborative learning environment for all who attended. I would definitely recommend PD Training to others (professional & personal) - especially if Joe is facilitating/training. Please pass on my thanks!"

-Department of Adolescent Medicine
"One of the big take away messages from the course was the realisation of the importance of my role in how people relate to me, how their words impact me etc."
"I found the last part of the course is more practical and useful, it relates more to the real work environment and the scenarios that we have everyday."
"Fantastic, the course was made relevant to our field and we were provided with useful tips and suggestions. He talked through a few scenarios with us and helped us to identify a better approach."
"Josh was an excellent instructor. He was engaging and patient and he took time to answer questions that may not have been specifically in the course outline but came up during the discussion. The only negative thing I would say is that going with colleagues made it difficult to answer questions 100% as other people knew who I was talking about. I really enjoyed the training and a benefited in my work life and personal life."
-IMI Australia Pty Ltd

Prime Minister & Cabinet
"Trainer was great. Material was great."
"Excellent course and fantastic trainer. Well delivered, relevant and informative."
"Richard was very engaging and helpful to provide further detail to the training material where required."
"Richard was great. Energetic, relative & dynamic. Very Enjoyable."
"Richards natural flexibility and wit to entertain and interact with his audience was exceptional. He made it fun, gave excellent personal, illustrations and yet left nothing in doubt about the key outcomes and reinforced the key skills/hints to ensure those outcomes. Interesting in the context of the course, when he walked into the room and started off with his English accent my personal reaction was somewhat negative... that rapid assessment, but within minutes he had my attention and I was confident of a worthwhile experience and his delivery. A very capable trainer and generally interesting, grounded personality. Sincerely, well done!!"
"Richard was very good, he provided a good mix of science, theory, practical examples and group tasks. The short videos were on topic and helpful. Overall an engaging, helpful and enjoyable workshop well delivered."
"Richard was clear in his advise and in a context that made sense."
"Information on the timing of the brains processing of chemicals released during different types of emotions was very useful in understanding strategies for managing some conflict situations."
G.James Glass & Aluminium
"I found Jo to be incredibly engaging and knowledgeable. His background experience certainly added a depth to the content which made it incredibly interesting for me."
Individual Course Participant
"Joe is a fantastic trainer and I enjoy attending his sessions. His style suits my learning needs. The course has provided me with some new tools that I look forward to putting into practise."

Conflict is the result of people having differing needs, opinions, expectations and often completely different individual perspectives. The reality of conflict is that in any human relationship it is inevitable, but if managed well, conflict can provide a powerful avenue for significant personal and professional growth.
Conflict resolution involves recognising and managing a particular conflict as well as being aware of potential upcoming conflicts. This is an essential part of nurturing your relationships. Poorly handled conflict can affect both the employees and the clients, thereby negatively impacting the company’s bottom-line. To maintain your competitive advantage, you need the entire organisation to focus on developing conflict resolution strategies to quickly and effectively resolve conflict, while building trust and commitment with clients and colleagues.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
