Event Details

Conflict in sport can arise in many ways, such as:

  • selecting athletes onto representative teams
  • interpreting the rules of the game
  • deciding which direction to take the club into the future.

Delivered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries in partnership with Ian Crawford from Candor Training, this workshop is designed to develop the skills of coaches, officials, and committee members to better deal with difficult people while preventing and managing conflict by investigating strategies to:

  • identify conflict in its early stages before it erupts into crisis
  • prevent conflict arising in the first place
  • use verbal strategies and body language to diffuse conflict
  • ask the one question that could stop conflict immediately
  • deal with conflict on social media.


Register your EOI before 4pm Tuesday 15 November 2022.

Submitting an EOI does not guarantee a place in the Managing Conflict and Difficult People workshop. You will be advised of the outcome of your application as soon as possible.

If you are unable to attend this event, please note that there is another workshop 6-8pm Wednesday 23 November 2022.
