Your skills as a mediator

With our training you cover a wide range of competencies based on knowledge, skills and self-reflection:

Who are our courses for?

Managers

Leading is conflict resolution! This applies all the more to the extent that hierarchical structures are relativized or dissolved. In project teams, when working in cross-company groups, it is increasingly important to achieve solutions that go beyond the hierarchical enforcement of formal power. This requires special skills to understand different perspectives and ultimately to develop solutions that are lasting and viable because they are supported by everyone involved.

Companies & Organizations

Companies and organizations from all sectors and fields of activity benefit from specific professionalization concepts and further training offers for their employees that are aligned with the corporate strategy.

Companies and organizations can cost-effectively develop the skills and potential of their managers and employees with unique professionalization quotas.

Conflict solvers & mediators

For mediators who have already completed further training and want to further deepen their knowledge within the framework of the legally prescribed further training, there are innovative further training and in-depth topics tailored to current requirements.

People who want to decide on well-founded further training to become a certified mediator with a focus on business │interest management will find a detailed description of the further training content, dates, prices and additional options offered by the Consensus Campus here.

Independent Entrepreneurs

As a self-employed entrepreneur, you may be in project and price negotiations with larger companies and face trained buyers. Or you are in the middle of a project and there are massively different opinions about the type and scope of the tasks and their execution. With well-founded further training in negotiation and interest management, you will be able to solve even difficult situations in a practical and objective manner.

An excellent deepening of my competence in dealing with conflicts in working life. Helps to learn specific instruments. But also practice from a meta perspective with a helpful look at embedding the conflict. Recommendable!
