what's online conflict coaching?

Great question!

Conflict coaching is the provision of skills & strategies to empower you in disagreements to engage with or manage your issues more constructively, normally with a view to sorting things out.

Usually it's one-to-one, in other words by a conflict coach working with you, helping you understand what’s really going on, giving you more space to think about and develop options and strategies. Or sometimes, you’ll find this kind of training being provided to a group, and it could be stand-alone or laid out as part of a mediation process.

all that change
in your pocket

Most importantly it’s not adversarial. To go through online conflict coaching is to appreciate that your problem won’t get sorted unless you think more deeply about how you approach it. The easy thing to do is to fight, to raise fists or weapons. But you know that does nothing to resolve conflict, right? Going on the attack or arming your defences in response, it might feel empowering, but it’s what can happen when control is lost, when the interests of those immersed in the conflict, including your own, have been skewed or forgotten.

And so, spending some time with a conflict coach can help you regain that control. It can help you focus more on your innermost goals, pave out a clearer path towards those goals, boost the skills and behaviours you’ll need to make dialogue more constructive, give you real insight and clarity within conflict.

So online conflict coaching does all this, wherever you are, whenever suits you. Just reach into your pocket, and pull out real change for your life!

Thank you for looking into how pocketconflictcoach could help you. In my experience as a mediator, preparing yourself well to go into mediation, or indeed into any difficult conversation you've been worrying about, is key to making things easier. This course helps you understand why your conflicts are making you feel the way you do, and crucially how to change this, how to improve your control and understanding in any conflict. Doing this work will make you significantly more effective in arguments, negotiations, mediations and more.

how can it help me?

This is a course that's founded on the understanding that more than likely, your brain shares pretty much the same mechanics as everyone you’ve come across in life, everyone you're up against in disagreements.

In conflict, your brain has the capacity to operate effectively in every single conflict you face. So if you pick up why it is that your most powerful enemy in conflict is actually your brain, if you develop what you need to boss it, then no matter what issues get in your way you’ll have a far greater opportunity to connect with people and to sort things out.

So this little online conflict coaching course is designed to take you on a journey, at your own pace, wherever you are in the world. You’ll have access to it for the rest of your life, whenever you want. Just pull it out of your pocket and refresh your skills.
