CPD 4- Mediation Skills for Managers

The final in our series of CPD Workshops for Managers for 2014 takes place on Wednesday December 3rd with a session on Mediation Skills for Managers led by Tony Bourke.

Conflict between team members is an issue that every manager dreads. If the manager ignores the conflict, it may escalate and if s/he gets involved in the conflict, it may worsen.  But the team expect the manager to do something.
The usual solution, if the conflict is difficult, is to follow the grievance process.  This may be a long, tedious and expensive process with a less than optimal outcome.
As a result, organisations now encourage people in dispute to try mediation as this has been shown to succeed in resolving 4 out of 5 conflicts. Mediation is therefore fast becoming a modern management skill.
This session will cover:

  • Understanding the nature of disputes
  • The grievance process
  • Mediation and its benefits
  • The classic mediation model
  • Mediating in bullying disputes
