INTERPERSONAL SKILLS AND CONFLICT MANAGEMENT

MGT3ISC

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Conflict, whether positive or negative, is an important feature of our daily lives. This subject focuses on conflict both interpersonally and collectively in the work setting. Both lectures and tutorials are interactive. In lectures we explore the theory relating to the nature of conflict and effective interpersonal communication skills, the relationship between these and approaches to conflict management between people and groups. In tutorials we apply theory to practice in a range of ways including discussion, group work, presentations, role plays and reflective writing. On an individual level, you will be encouraged to develop self-awareness of your own interpersonal communication style and the skills necessary to develop effective working relationships including those characterised by diversity and teamwork.
