Conflict Management Is Important
Conflict management is a key competency area with skills that are difficult to master in the abstract or through reading and classroom alone. Coaches, Administrators, Team Captains, Athletes, and others learn best when in a situation that requires some guidance and support from a conflict management expert.
Key to a Healthy Team
Effective conflict management is key to a constructive locker room culture. Serious conflicts can cost your team in terms of performance on and off the field. It can also open the door to unnecessary escalations that, at their worst, involve legal action, investigations, terminations and departures, and lost seasons and careers.
Sports Conflict Coaching is Effective
Sports conflict coaching is effective. In essence, it is training for one and provides a better way to understand conflict and how to effectively manage it. Most importantly, it allows focus to remain on critical activities necessary to prepare to perform optimally within the sport itself. By addressing key sources of negative stress, energy is preserved for the demands of the sport itself.
