Training to manage and resolve conflicts

The increase in conflictive situations in work teams, due to their collateral effects, has raised the interest of the scientific community. According to recent studies, it can be affirmed that, increasingly, in the professional field, the emotional skills that determine the coping style of interpersonal conflicts take on greater relevance.

Along these lines, studies carried out in Spain affirm that the absence of corrective mechanisms aimed at influencing risk factors, as well as inefficiency in conflict management when it has already occurred, supposes a much higher cost than intervening for its prevention.
