Course Duration

3-hour session

About the course

Conflict is an inevitable part of human existence. It is primarily due to man’s inherent selfish nature. As James 4:1 says, “what causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?” Conflict creates both positive and negative consequences because conflicts can either break or strengthen the relationships that we have.

Hence, it is the goal of the Breakthrough Conversation Workshop to equip individuals on how to handle difficult conversations that we encounter, more specifically (1) to resolve the conflict or the problem; (2) to save the relationship that is at stake; and (3) to help yourself and
the other person to improve.
