Addressing issues in the workplace with civil discourse and respect.
As Christian leaders, you are tasked to model civil discourse in ways that are not often seen in our culture today. Even in ministry settings, we know the ability to facilitate crucial conversations and find conflict resolution does not come easily.
This interactive and practical Conflict Management workshop aims to provide tangible ways to address crucial conversations in the workplace. Gain practical skills for addressing conflict respectfully when interacting with staff, colleagues and other leaders.
Learn how to create an environment of respect and value that allows for unique differences, personalities, and ideas from the people we work with, including:
1. A conflict management model that offers a practical framework for participants to apply with others.
2. Common ways we often respond and feel when presented with misunderstandings.
3. Best conversation practices for real ministry scenarios.
