Have you noticed more people engaging in “high-conflict” behaviour these days? Someone yelling at a receptionist? An employee sending nasty emails to co-workers? Another professional who seems to get into conflict with other people all the time and never takes responsibility for his/her actions? A client who files multiple complaints without merit against a professional over a miscommunication?
This behaviour is considered “high-conflict” because it increases conflict instead of reducing or resolving it. Most people with these types of extreme behaviours have a repeated pattern of high-conflict behaviour—it’s part of who they are. They didn’t just make a mistake or act out of the blue—they have done this before and will do it again.
This one-day workshop is designed to help lawyers and other legal professionals learn the theory of high-conflict behaviour and the necessary skills and techniques to manage high-conflict disputes. Participants will draw from their own experience and already developed skills, and as a result gain insight and confidence when dealing with high-conflict behaviour.
