Are you responsible for helping people work through conflict?
Do you manage important conversations between clients, employees, team members, volunteers or other people?
Do you want to improve your ability to facilitate conversations of consequence?
Do you want to learn to mediate or enhance your conflict resolution skills?
In this gold standard mediation training, learn how to support parties working through conflict or engaging in other important conversations in a different way. Our Understanding-Based model focuses on guiding parties to make knowing and informed choices together in a respectful manner. Highlights of our basic training, Working Creatively with Conflict, include:
- Positive neutrality –supporting all parties without taking sides
- The Loop of Understanding – enhancing understanding and empathy
- Creative Options — innovating to meet differing needs and interests
- A Foundation for the Future — building the groundwork for the parties to make effective and lasting decisions together now and in the future
Who Will Benefit From This Training?
Our participants include mediators, lawyers, collaborative professionals, business consultants, executive coaches, managers and supervisors, human resources professionals, ombuds-people, non-profit staff, and other people whose work will be enhanced by increased skills in conflict resolution. Participants report it is one of the top mediation programs they have taken.
What is the Format of the Training?
This hands-on online training features briefings on the core skills of the Understanding Based Approach, followed by lively demonstrations and role-plays, all of which immerse participants in the learning. Realistic simulations, in which participants work through mediations from beginning to end, with coaching from our teachers, offer participants the chance to hone their skills and experience the emotional challenges faced by parties in dispute. Participants describe these different modes of learning and their interplay as enjoyable as they are engaging and rewarding.
