This workshop will help you help explore conflict and difficult situations in a safe and consistent way

About this event

What would it look like to be able to develop and practice skills to help explore conflict and difficult situations in a safe and consistent way?

In this workshop we will give you an introduction to communication practices that encourage a culture of openness and trust in the workplace. You will try these practices out for yourselves and explore how they could help your team communicate more effectively, ultimately leading to a happier and more fulfilling work life for the members of your coop. Finally, we’ll reflect on what we’ve learnt and experienced in the workshop and you’ll identify any next steps to using some or all of these concepts and practices within your own coop.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course participants will have:

  • Learnt what active/reflective listening is and practised using it to speak about real situations
  • Learnt about behaviours that help develop openness, understanding and trust in teams
  • Explored how conflict in the workplace can be responded to safely
  • Clarified personal and organisational next steps in implementing any of these learnings
