Creative Conflict Prevention, Management & Transformation

Time: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Description: Creative Conflict Prevention, Management & Transformation

In today's organizations, a range of creative, holistic approaches are needed to prevent, manage and transform conflict. Holistic approaches meet difference with dialogue, integrating intuition with analysis to inform collaborative processes. In this workshop, participants will learn ways to prevent, assess and manage conflict with a particular accent on creative problem-solving. Using case examples, we will explore the dynamics of conflict transformation and its relationship to resilience.

Together, we will explore ways to
- augment practical repertoires for preventing, assessing and transforming conflict in organizational settings;
- apply a relational framework for conflict analysis and intervention;
- analyze power dynamics as they inter-relate with conflict.

This workshop will assist participants to deepen their repertoires for working with people from different backgrounds.
