Conflict Communication

Research indicates that communication problems account for 85% of disagreements in the workplace. This course gives you the tools you need to deal with difficult circumstances. Conflict will always arise in human connection, but how we respond to it can have a significant effect on our relationships, productivity, and overall well-being. In this course on conflict communication, participants will study a range of concepts, procedures, and practical ways of managing and resolving conflicts in various contexts. With interactive sessions, case studies, and role-playing, participants will acquire useful communication skills like empathy, bargaining, active listening, and assertiveness. In addition, they will learn how to effectively manage their emotions, identify and address the underlying causes of conflict, and encourage collaborative problem-solving.

The course is held by Elena Gabor, Ph.D., at the Făgăraș Summer School in July 2024.
