Overall Course Overview:
Wherever different personalities meet in everyday professional life, different views and interpretations are on the agenda. This often leads to open or hidden conflicts. It is crucial not to fear conflicts or consider them as disturbing, but much more as a chance for better and more creative problem solving! Because the problem is not the conflict itself, but the handling of the conflict situation! In order to use this potential optimally, it is necessary to have a mastery of tools with which one's own logic and ways of thinking become visible to others, and help them to decode the individual interests behind them. One's own attitude and approach to the logic of others determines the guises and escalation steps of conflicts.
