Conflict Coaching

 

What is Conflict Coaching?

Conflict coaching assists individuals in finding ways to manage or address individual conflicts in their lives. Generally this occurs in a one-on-one meeting.

This service is available if another party declines mediation or if an individual wants to address conflict without a third party, but needs assistance in planning to do so.

 

Benefits of Conflict Coaching

  • Directly assists the concerned individual with managing conflict.
  • Maintains direct and private communication between disputing parties.
  • Improves an individual’s overall ability to manage and communicate in conflict.
  • Can be done if only one party is interested.
  • Can be a first step before mediation.
  • Like mediation, is generally less costly and time-consuming than other methods of addressing a dispute.
