Our vision is to achieve a society in which people, workplaces and organisations are skilled in negotiation, conflict management and dispute resolution.
We do this by:
Our courses and workshops are conducted both on an in-house basis and as public courses. Conflict Dynamics' trainers receive consistently excellent feedback from delegates. The world-class standards of Conflict Dynamics training were recognised in 2012 when the Conflict Dynamics Commercial Mediator Skills training course received the CEDR ADR Trainer's Award in the UK. Conflict Dynamics has accredited over 500 mediators to world standards.
Conflict Dynamics offers accredited mediators, many of whom are also able to provide services as facilitators, chairpersons of enquiries and investigations, and negotiation or mediation coaches for a wide range of disputes, through its CD Direct service. CD Direct is accredited by the South African Dispute Settlement Accreditation Council.

Language and Conflict

Although conflict, negotiation and mediation should have been far from my mind, it wasn’t. I kept being reminded about the role of communication and language in dealing with people and conflict."
Sharpen your Conflict Management skills
31 Jul 2019 - "Ensure that you understand conflict and have the tools necessary to manage such situations rather than fuelling them further. Conflict Dynamics’ one-day public workshop - Sharpen your Conflict Management Skills being held on 18th September 2019 - will focus on conflict in the workplace to assist you to understand how interpersonal conflict develops in the workplace and your natural conflict-handling style. You will learn the skills and processes necessary to manage this conflict and prevent or resolve disputes in an effective manner. There will be opportunities to practice processes to prepare for and conduct difficult conversations, and to problem solve in a participative manner. "
