Aim:Positively change the way you manage relationships and experience challenges and conflict in the workplace.
Provider: Tobias Rodrigues (link)
For:Career groups. Please see edition dates for details.

In 48 energetic, educational and entertaining hours, you will become enthusiastic about building positive and creative relationships at work. You will incorporate specific and tangible tools to address the challenging conflicts that arise as part of your tasks and responsibilities.
The way you think, move, listen and talk will be redirected toward the effective management of the conflicts that are typical of a multicultural, multilingual, multi-worldview environment — where excellence and thoroughness play an active role — such as is the case of the scientific research park that the PRBB is.

Day 1: Learning through experience: observe and perform in order to boost your skills. You receive practical tips and tools to manage conflicts in a positive and rewarding way.

Day 2: You apply the steps in individual and group exercises. The continuous positive and constructive feedback you receive from everyone helps you amplify your personal transformation.

Study commitment:

Before the course participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire.


Tobias Rodrigues has a master in conflictology and a degree in philosophy. He is an experienced effective team-player trainer.
