What does your business do?

Critical Moments is a Conflict Management coaching and training practice especially for those living and working in rural and regional areas.

Conflict coaching is useful for a team or workplace, as well as individuals who feel they need some support. Sessions are always one-on-one and confidential and all discussions remain strictly between you and your coach.

I will work with you to develop skills and knowledge to enable you to more effectively engage in a dispute or conflict. Conflict coaching is similar to working with other coaches, however the focus is on working with an individual to

• work through a specific conflict or dispute

• and/or develop skills to be more effective in handling conflict and difficult situations

I can also provide you with interactive groups session that will assist your team to understand why conflict occurs and how to tackle it to get a positive outcome – these sessions are tailored to your needs.

The objectives of the sessions will be to

• Reduce the harmful effects of workplace incompatibility swiftly and effectively

• Provide staff with skills and knowledge to manage conflict with clients, colleagues and in their personal lives

• Reduce the need for you to resolve or intervene in workplace conflicts

What area do you serve? Australia – sessions can be face-to-face or held remotely
