Southampton Group


Conflict Resolution Masterclass


In this session, we will examine how organisations – private and public – are now approaching the management of conflict head‐on, budgeting for it and making it part of their business strategy. 

Johanna will talk about how policy change and associated training can help us manage conflict when it inevitably arises. She will talk about how approaching conflict in a holistic manner makes organisations stronger, more  creative and better prepared for change while promoting an environment of engagement, support and better mental and physical health.


As a result of attending this event you will:

  • Understand the nature of conflict
  • Understand the role HR can play in building collaborative workplaces
  • Understand how to approach conflict in the workplace to bring about positive change
  • Understand how to deal with conflict in the workplace and how it maps to the CIPD profession map


Refreshments will be served from 18:00hrs with the event starting promptly at 18:30hrs.

Our Speaker:


Johanna Whelehan, Head of Resolution Services, The TCM Group


Johanna Whelehan is an accredited mediator, trainer and Head of Resolution Services at the TCM Group. With a background in linguistics, legal publishing and project management, Johanna has worked in translation, interpreting and localisation and has facilitated conversations across a variety of sectors.

Her main interests have always been communication and facilitation and her ability to bring concepts to life in a dynamic and engaging manner make her a very popular trainer. She delivers high-energy, high-impact training which addresses complex subjects with space for reflection and challenge.


She has mediated successful outcomes in group and two-party mediations across the gamut of private and public sector organisations and attributes her success as a mediator to her ability to ask challenging questions in an empathetic manner and never, ever to make assumptions.


Johanna’s abilities to quickly make connections and build rapport strengthen TCM’s commercial relationships and underpin her passion for delivering practical and sustainable solutions to industries as diverse as aviation, investment banking, engineering, public health and third-level education.


Some of Johanna’s recent assignments have included:

  • Setting up an in-house mediation schemes for Virgin Atlantic, Deutsche Bank, PHE, The Metropolitan Police and many others.
  • Alongside CEO David Liddle, embedding a values-based culture within the British Retail Consortium.
  • Working with a number of NHS Trusts to embed a culture of mediation, including St George’s and the James Paget Trust
  • Alongside CEO David Liddle, designing and delivering a number of workshops and courses for senior managers and the global HR Team at Capgemini.
  • Undertaking successful mediations for a wide array of organisations.
