The Bottom Line

This course is for leaders willing and able to re-direct their personal will toward an intent to learn from conflict. Graduates will do so by "walking the talk" and responding, not simply reacting, responsibly to unproductive conflict. Graduates of this course will exhibit competent language skills to de-escalate conflict. Many specific techniques will be demonstrated to show how to facilitate resolution. The tools of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) are important to the process of understanding conflict and building excellent communication skills.

For both a Fortune 100 telecom and a major Federal Services organization, Steve successfully built effective teams among previously ineffective groups by utilizing NLP-based facilitation techniques.
