Established in 1996, Conflict Dynamics is committed to developing and enhancing the conflict management and dispute resolution skills of people in South Africa and more widely. This includes conflict management training, negotiation skills training, disciplinary enquiry training, disciplinary hearing training, mediator training, mediation training, arbitrator training, arbitration training, and labour law training, amongst other skills.

Conflict Dynamics conducts training and workshops to equip individuals, groups and organisations with the necessary skills and knowledge to manage conflict and resolve disputes most effectively. The products are designed to meet learner and organisational needs, the standards of the National Qualifications Framework and international best practice. 

Courses and workshops are typically conducted on an in-house basis although this year we are also offering a range of public courses. One of our new public courses is the 2-day Strategic Negotiation Skills course.

Conflict Dynamics' trainers receive consistently excellent feedback from delegates. The world class standards of Conflict Dynamics training were recognised in 2012 when the Conflict Dynamics Commercial Mediator Skills training course received the CEDR ADR Trainer's Award in the UK. Conflict Dynamics has accredited over 450 mediators to world standards. 

Conflict Dynamics delivers training throughout Southern Africa and further afield in Nigeria, the UK, Italy, amongst other countries.

"The role-plays were incredibly helpful. This type of process / skills seems to be best developed through practice."

"From negotiation oblivion to negotiation genius in 4 days."
