About Conflict Management Coaching 

Conflict management coaching is a specialized one-on-one process to develop skills and strategies to better engage in, manage, and productively resolve conflict.  In the workplace, Conflict Coaches assist leaders in reducing the high cost of conflict by developing their conflict management skills in order for them to effectively manage their own interpersonal disputes:

  • Conflict management coaching is very useful as an early intervention strategy, in situations where parties may not be ready or able to bring the conflict into the open, or where there are habitual patterns of destructive conflict.
  • Conflict management coaching can also be used to prepare people to engage more effectively in negotiation, mediation, relational conflict, and change.

The CINERGY® model of conflict management integrates executive coaching, conflict management, and neuroscience principles. It is a dynamic seven stage process that is specifically designed to help clients improve their conflict management skills and abilities according to each person’s individual and specific goals.
