Find out about this Conflict Management Training Course Outline:

In the challenging world of UK supermarkets and suppliers conflict is frequent. And those conflicts, like tenders, negotiations, and differences of opinion, can be very costly for a supplier if they get it wrong. This CPD accredited Conflict Management training course supports Learners to understand their default position in conflict situations and how they can use alternate styles to achieve better outcomes.

This is a Conflict Management training course of 1+1 classroom days, 6 months apart, with support in between training days designed to make the learning stick. You will experience our unique training method Sticky Learning ®, the course will be delivered by a world class tutor that has worked in the UK Grocery Industry, and our ROI guarantee is included.

Specifically designed to meet the specific and challenging demands of suppliers to the big four UK supermarkets. This training course will change the way Learners approach conflict, giving them tools, techniques, and confidence to more better deal with situations.

Conflict Management Testimonials

Making the Learning Stick

Hopefully the term ‘Sticky Learning ®’ has intrigued you, whilst you probably guessed a sense of what it is about.

In short Sticky Learning ® is our own unique method that we have developed to help Learners Realise more of what they have learnt, be able to Recall more of what they have learnt, and Retain more of what they have learnt. In 2016 we further upgraded this unique training method to include habits formation as a big part of helping Learners to use more of what they have learnt.

This is good for our clients because it means that the money they spend with us is better invested than with other training providers because the learning is used for longer.

Training Course Duration

At MBM we no longer offer 1 day courses due to their limited effect.

Our Sticky Learning ® unique training method enables Learners to learn more, learn more quickly, and learn more easily. Sticky Learning ® is a key part of the 6 month training course consisting of pre-work, Learning To Learn 1/2 day training course, a Foundation 1 day training course, and an Advanced 1 day training course (6 months after the Foundation training course).

In between the Foundation training course and the Advanced training course, the Learner will be challenged to complete ‘Sticky Pieces’, which appeals to the 70:20:10 learning model. These are desk based activities that help the Learner to change their behaviour long term by identifying a habit that they wish to adopt to embed the new skill.

The Learner is also given:

Measuring Return on Investment for Conflict Management Training

There are many evaluation methods for training, each trying to find the holy grail of return on investment. We use Donald Kirkpatrick’s four level training evaluation model as a base because it has stood the test of time, since 1953.

Level 1: Reaction: How did the Learners react to the training?

Level 2: Learning: How much learning did the Learners get?

Level 3: Behaviour: How much have the Learners used the learning?

Level 4: Results: How much effect did the Learner’s learning have on performance?

Few training providers measure the return on investment beyond the level 1 reaction. We have added one further level:

Level 5: Sponsor: How much did we achieve the sponsor’s objectives?

Read more about our 5 level evaluation tool and see an example report – ‘Chain of Evidence’.

Learning Needs to be Intriguing

To this end of ‘Learning needs to be intriguing’ we name each one of our training courses after a relevant film and we’ll make reference to this on the course.

For our Conflict Management training course we chose ‘Fight Club‘ because the biggest challenge of managing conflict is first managing your own fear.

This film from 1999, rated R, stars Edward Norton, as a white-collar man who is discontent with his job, so he starts a Fight Club.
