A process which provides an opportunity for those in conflict, be it with a work colleague, family member, friend, or even within themselves, to explore their situation and ways in which they can move forward whilst remaining in control of their decisions. The conflict coach helps the client to discuss and reflect on the issues they are experiencing in order for them to understand their responses and themselves better. This confidential, client led process, can help them to create new and more effective responses to their situation.
Conflict Coaching supports people in finding a way forward and regaining control of their life. The process gives people the opportunity and space to resolve their own conflict, realising the potential within themselves to use this skill in the future. Experience within both HR and as a mediator has shown me how devastating the effects of conflict can be. Time and time again I have seen how people believe they are no longer in control of their own life; feeling they are being forced to live in a way contrary to their wishes due to the behaviour or actions of others. Conflict coaching can change this.
Conflict Coaching can be of benefit to the person who feels 'stuck'. The process provides people with the space to think and be really listened to in a way in which they actually feel heard, without judgement. They are supported with questions and time to reflect, allowing insight and understanding to arise and helping them to move forward.
I have worked in HR for thirty years with experience ranging from large corporate organisations to small family businesses.
I have been a mediator for almost ten years both in neighbourhood and workplace settings and am passionate about alternative ways to resolve conflict. Following my training as a Conflict Coach I have adopted many of the underlying principles and philosophies of the CAOS method of Conflict Coaching into my daily life.
