Crucial Steps for Conflict Confidence

February 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


This workshop is for women living with disability, delivered through the Y Connect Project.

Conflict is an unavoidable part of both our personal and professional lives. Having the skills to resolve conflict and deal with difficult people can increase your confidence, impact and influence.

If you’ve been quiet when you wanted to speak up, avoided conflict or settled for less than you wanted, join us for a workshop on ‘Conflict Confidence’ covering:

  • Conflict unpacked
  • Negotiation tips and tricks in critical conversations
  • Remaining centred under pressure
  • How to stay concise and stay in control
  • The do’s and don’ts of dealing with difficult and demanding people

Gain insight into the skills to manage difficult situations and be the positive difference when courageous leadership is needed. Through this workshop you will learn about:

  • Regaining control: how to turn fear into courage when you need to step up and speak up.
  • Reducing conflict: recognising and understanding how to respond to difficult personalities.
  • Remaining resilient: mindfulness and self-care strategies that really work to remain calm and solution focused.
