WHY A CONFLICT MANAGEMENT SPACE?
There is a gap between the theories and practice of conflict management. Those who have the knowledge are expensive, often have narrow specializations, and de facto can only reach a limited audience.
As this space grows, it seeks to provide flexible, interactive, & focused skills-building easily accessible and affordable to the people who need it the most.
Here you will find online training programs, blogs, recommended readings, podcasts, handouts and personal consulting to help you find the best material to build your skills. If you cannot find it just ask.
WHAT I DO
“If we want to solve a conflict,
we do not always need third-party mediation.
Instead what we need is to live the principles of mediation in
our daily work and interaction with others.”
The Conflict Management Space Podcast is a new ongoing series by Dr. Juan Diaz-Prinz for bringing sustainable win-win conflict management and negotiation strategies and resources to the public with current, engaging, and thought-provoking themes.
