This flexible programme is available for both individuals and teams and can be customised to provide a ‘best fit’ for industry sectors and/or according to individual or group needs.

Conflict Resolution

The costs of unresolved conflicts at work can be huge – to the parties involved, to colleagues and teams, to clients and to business performance. The CBI estimates that conflict in the workplace costs UK businesses £33 billion per year, taking up 20% of leadership time and losing up to 370 million working days.


This programme draws on the proven approach of the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) to equip you with the skills to recognise and respond to conflict quickly, flexibly and effectively by learning to identify people’s motivational value systems and how to respond to the motivations that underlie behaviour.


Through the programme you will gain a greater understanding of how to recognise and respond to the motivations that underlie behaviour and how to manage the behaviour of others to resolve conflict.
