Six Practice Activities

Throughout the course, you will have short exercises to do, that we've designed to reinforce the skills we'll cover. If you have any questions to ask or comments to make, you can do so inside the course, and Mike will be there to respond and support you.

So, best of all...

You get personal support from your trainer, Dr Mike Clayton.

Each module has a comments box where you can ask the questions you need answered. 

Your tutor is Dr. Mike Clayton. As a senior manager at international consulting firm, Deloitte, Mike had to deal with conflict among staff, and with clients, and even among clients. But more important, as a senior representative of his firm and a program leader, he needed to avoid escalation of conflict.

Now, as a trainer and facilitator, he has been applying what he learned and teaching it to others. This course represents 15 years' experience of what tools students find most helpful, and 25 years experience in business, managing conflicts large and small.
