Learn to Understand and manage relationships

Sneak Peek

 

 

Help others to better manage their relationships – at work, home or play. Everyone’s lives are filled with relationships: friends, spouses, children, parents, team mates, workmates, colleagues, partners, acquaintances, employees: whatever the relationship is, there is always potential for problems to arise. Some relationships strengthen and then weaken, slowly, without any drama, but others require careful navigation of dramatic issues that can create conflict, stress and damage to the lives involved.

This course helps you to better understand the dynamics of any type of relationship and to apply a variety of techniques to better manage those relationships.

 The course encompasses 9 lessons containing additional activities that will give you a broader  perspective of what circumstances you can apply the skills learned here.
