Conflict Management in the Workplace (RAH Campus)

Aim of course

We spend a great deal of our time at work and it is expected we do this alongside other people, often in workplace teams to achieve a common goal. This doesn’t always go smoothly and we are not always surrounded by people who have effective communication and interpersonal skills. Sometimes after challenging experiences we may think to ourselves,’ I wish I could have approached that differently’.

This course has been developed to assist staff to identify and build on behaviours which can enhance interactions with those around them, identifying problematic behaviours and how and when to intervene when these behaviours impact on us.  A further aim of the program is to build on personal insights, skills, and knowledge that may assist us with communicating effectively with others and to do so without exacerbating problem situations.

While this program doesn’t look at clinically driven challenging behaviours, the skills and information you receive will be beneficial in in building positive relationships with colleagues as well as consumers.

The course covers:

  • The influences behind conflict?
  • The impact of conflict
  • Signs and stages of conflict
  • The “back story” of conflict
  • Behaviours in conflict
  • Issues Vs relationships
  • Assertion Vs aggression
  • Self-awareness & awareness of others
  • Understanding communication
  • Active listening & responding
  • Building currency with others
  • Strategies for looking after self and others


Learning Outcomes

To enable participants to:

  • Identify signs, stages and influences of conflict in the workplace
  • Propose basic strategies to deal with one to one workplace conflicts
  • Use communication skills to facilitate constructive responses to conflict in the workplace
  • Develop deeper understanding and self-awareness

Team culture understand it, develop it

Ever wondered why some teams just seem to work and others hit the rocks?  When things don’t work, it is obvious to all and it often has a profound effect on the people involved, as well as the team’s goals to be achieved.

A useful way to think about teams is to consider the two roles every person plays in a working group: a functional role, based on their formal qualifications and technical skill, and a psychological role, based on the kind of person they are. Too often, organisations’ focus merely on the functional role and hope that good team performance somehow follows.

So while you might think your work team is dysfunctional perhaps it’s a lack of understanding regarding how team culture emerges – and that is something that can be addressed

This workshop asks us to consider what might initially be thought of as a team’s weakness or threat is actually its greatest asset.


Pre-requisites

None


Suitable Applicants

Open to all staff employed within Central Adelaide Local Health Network in the first instance.


Learning Outcomes

  • Identify influences on effective team work
  • Identify our preferred styles of working with others
  • Use our strengths AND weaknesses as a strategy to create more effective teams
