Saturday August 6
Non Violent Communication and Conflict Resolution Workshop - This workshop will be lead by Karen Ridd.
Bike shop volunteers find themselves dealing not just with mentoring and teaching people - but also with some tricky interpersonal situations. Karen Ridd will lead a hands-on, participatory workshop that gives volunteers tools and techniques for verbally de-fusing people, and for resolving conflict. The focus will be on practical skills and practise, using real life scenarios that volunteers have encountered to add to peoples' existing skills. Karen Ridd teaches in the Conflict Resolution Studies programme at the University of Winnipeg: she has worked with grassroots organizations for years, including human rights work in Latin America, community capacity building in Southeast Asia and First Nations communities, and living in inner-city Winnipeg.
Participants in this workshop will gain tools, techniques and skills, and will do hands-on practise for:
- defusing high tension situations and
- dealing with intra-organizational and interpersonal conflicts
Participants will develop and hone their communication skills for effective conflict resolution
2:00 - 5:00 PM at the United Way Building main floor 580 Main St.
