This webinar is designed for OH Professionals who wish to support their teams and clients to avoid formal grievances, and instead to resolve disputes informally and collaboratively. We will explore common pitfalls and effective approaches, all of which are grounded in real life cases facilitated by Owen Bubbers-Jones, a workplace mediator with extensive experience of resolving conflicts in numerous NHS Trusts as well as the private sector. Participants of this webinar will gain an understanding of: • Top reasons for why OH related grievances occur • How to explain the benefits of informal approaches in conflict resolution • How to use constructive communication tools more effectively • How to best engage people in conflict in order to allow for collaborative solutions • Best practice response strategies to criticism or attack.
