Our vision is to achieve a society in which people, workplaces and organisations are skilled in negotiation, conflict management and dispute resolution.

We do this by:

Our 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, many of whom are also able to provide services as facilitators, chairpersons of enquiries and investigations, and negotiation or mediation coaches for a wide range of disputes, through its CD Direct service. CD Direct is accredited by the South African Dispute Settlement Accreditation Council.

Line managers and even HR/ER specialists can be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed at times when trying to keep up with the basics pertaining to workplace discipline. Join us for a one-day course on 20 November 2019 in Johannesburg during which we will explore potentially challenging areas when preparing for and presenting cases in internal disciplinary enquiries."
