INTERMEDIATE CONFLICT COACHING
With Cordell Wesselink & Betsy Zeger
December 5, Saturday | 10:00am - 5:00pm, Pacific Standard Time
Intermediate Conflict Coaching is an advanced training that will give you new techniques and tools. You’ll have additional opportunities to practice conflict coaching and get expert feedback. This training is a must for those who have taken Community Boards’ Conflict Coaching 101 training.
In this highly hands-on, one-day training, you will learn when and how to:
- Use an empathy map to broaden a client’s perspective and help them get more clarity.
- Effectively use role play with clients to give them a chance to practice effectively communicating.
- Teach the client effective communication techniques.
- Work with a client that is really stuck and doesn’t see any good options.
- End a conflict coaching session and make a referral when coaching isn’t the most effective option.
We will also talk in more depth about assisting clients in coming up with doable action plans and supporting the client to follow through with it. Additional techniques for conflict coaching by phone will also be covered.
Currently not an active Conflict Coach? While focused on conflict coaching, these skills are also useful in mediation, facilitation, consulting, H.R., family situations, and more. We hope you will join us in going to the next level of conflict coaching.
