8th Annual Service Engagement Summit
How can we use conflict to transform our relationships and create opportunity? First we have to embrace conflict as a natural part of co-existing, playing out on multiple interacting levels: personal, interpersonal, structural and cultural. This workshop will help you learn tools to identify your approach to conflict, better understand the perspectives of others and communicate with greater clarity and intentionality. We will apply these tools for conflict transformation to your own experiences of conflict through hands-on exercises, drawing from Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Paul Lederach’s principles for conflict transformation.
