Negotiation and Conflict Resolution for Organizations

Transform conflict into opportunity.

A Collaborative Approach to Conflict Resolution

Finding constructive ways to approach conflict is essential for professional, personal and organizational growth. In addition to regularly offered professional development opportunities, including courses and badges, Creighton’s Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NCR) program and its 2040 Initiative provide a range of popular workshops and custom programs for organizations including non-profits, government, community and health care organizations.

The NCR Program can meet your organization’s needs through customized workshops, consultations, facilitations, coaching services and training (long-and short-term). Led by professionals with interdisciplinary and international backgrounds, we offer diverse, expert knowledge coupled with hands-on activities such as improvisational role plays and simulations customized to each partnership. Our programs are guided by Jesuit values of social justice, responsible leadership and professional distinction.
