Established in 1996, Conflict Dynamics is committed to promoting effective conflict management and dispute resolution in South Africa, and more widely.
This includes providing training, mediation and facilitation services.
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. Courses include: 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. 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 conducted both on an in-house basis and as public courses. 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 500 mediators to world standards.
Conflict Dynamics offers accredited mediators for a wide range of disputes, through its CD Direct service. All CD Direct mediators are also accredited by the South African Dispute Settlement Accreditation Council.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Well done, John and Felicity! You are indeed the torch-bearers in the field of mediation and I trust that you will continue to illuminate the road for other legal professionals and the courts to embrace the process as value-adding to their practice."
- Colleague, commenting on the CEDR ADR Trainer's Award
"I have litigated for about 10 years. I got to a point where I convinced myself that litigation was the only way to resolve a dispute. Little did I know that all I was doing was simply standing in the way of real solutions to problems. I now know that litigation has little to do with conflict resolution and more to do with who wins and who loses."
