Intermediate Conflict Coaching 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 Training 101.

In this highly hands-on, one-day training, you will learn when and how to:

  • Effectively use role play with clients to help broaden their perspective and give them a chance to practice effectively communicating.
  • Help clients become aware of their assumptions so that they can be open to new possibilities.
  • 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 refer the client elsewhere.

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.
