Preface

Not many people like to deal with conflict, do you?

Perhaps it’s the difference of opinion or if someone is getting aggressive towards you, but it’s not a pleasant experience.

So how do you deal with conflict and complaints? Do you become aggressive back when it becomes a matter of who “wins” or “loses” the argument? Or do you use cunning and well thought through communication and interpersonal skills to get you through the other end with the outcome that you desired?

In this textbook you’ll learn the key skills and the techniques to handle conflict and complaints in many different ways. From dealing with the direct and outright abusive person through to the calculated “I want to be right at all costs” person, you’ll learn the communication and soft skills to deal with all situations where conflict arises.
