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

Leadership is conflict resolution! This applies all the more to the extent that hierarchical structures relativize or dissolve. In project teams, when working in cross-company groups, it is increasingly important to achieve solutions that are beyond the hierarchical assertion of formal power. This requires special skills to understand different perspectives and ultimately to develop solutions that are sustainable and sustainable because they are shared by everyone involved.

Companies & Organizations

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

With unique professionalization quotas, companies and organizations can develop the skills and potential of their managers and employees in a cost-effective manner.

Conflict mediators

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

People who want to opt for in-depth advanced training to become a certified mediator with a focus on economics and 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 sit across from 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 in-depth training in negotiation and interest management, you will be able to solve situations in a practical and factual 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!

One of the most valuable trainings in my life. Both privately and in business, a new way in which conflicts can be solved methodically and practically. It confirms how much the focus is on people and their needs.

3. What happens if I miss a module weekend?

These aspects are particularly interesting for the participants in our mediation training because many of them would like to use the skills acquired in this training at their workplace or for their future career in the company.
