Advanced People Skills for Mediators, Central London, 25th April 2018, from £155 plus VAT

Sessions are interactive and will include brainstormed, two-way interaction with delegates across exercises, facilitation and theory.
This is a truly unique way of dealing with people skills with training developed and prepared by such an experienced trainer with a very impressive list of private clients.

Using Facilitated Discussions to Resolve Workplace Disputes, Central London, from £155 plus VAT
Experienced mediator and HR specialist Sharon Crooks leads this session. A facilitated conversation is a less formal mechanism than a mediation to provide an opportunity for parties in conflict, or at risk of conflict, to explore the issues in dispute, and find positive ways to address them. It can be used at any stage, even before a formal conflict has been declared, to give people a voice without having to invoke a formal process. Even within a formal process, a timely and well-managed facilitated conversation may offer a breathing space and opportunity to resolve matters without moving to a punitive formal intervention from which it may be difficult to restore a positive working relationship.

People undertaking this training do so for several reasons, not least to pursue a career in mediation; to aid in representing parties in mediation; for academic research; for generally transferable business skills - mediator skills can help delegates become better negotiators and help them deal with conflict in their own businesses more effectively; to give themselves a more saleable / employable profile - this is the main reason for the increase in law students / BAR graduates taking the course. They feel it will help them get a placement more easily because they have something most candidates don't have. To find out more or to make a booking please visit Accredited Mediator Skills Training.
