Resolving Conflict to Promote Workplace Inclusion – An Organizational Challenge

Organization Development Network (ODN) of WNY

June 2014 Meeting Announcement

Resolving Conflict to Promote Workplace Inclusion: An Organizational Challenge

Facilitator: Sandra W. Whitmore

 

 

Meeting Overview:

What is “conflict” and how does it affect the workplace? The word may cause us to think of fighting, arguments, anger, disagreements, and hurt feelings. We may also see conflict as a natural, necessary part of life in the workplace which creates tension and can result in change.

Are disagreements or difference of opinion bad? Of course not, but how conflict is handled can be negative or positive. In this workshop we will explore storytelling and multi-partiality concepts in mediation. We’ll consider how these concepts might be applied in our organizations to generate new understanding and result in positive change. Come excited, engaged, and ready to participate!

 
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how to explore new ideas and new approaches with a social justice lens in dealing with conflict.
  • What qualities and abilities a successful mediator needs to be effective.
  • What mediation is and how it can be useful in working through challenges in the workplace.

This model is from the Social Justice Mediation Institute, Dr. Leah Wing

Meeting Overview:

Contemporary research in neuroscience provides new insights into the deeply social nature of the human brain and its importance for how we get things done at work. The emerging practice of NeuroLeadership (a term coined by Dr. David Rock) incorporates the most recent findings from neuroscience research with the latest in leadership theory.

This workshop will explore the brain science of social interactions, why they matter so much and why change is often so difficult. The SCARF brain-based model for collaborating with and influencing others will be introduced. We’ll look at how our brains respond when we interact with other people and how this knowledge can be applied to boost performance.

Key outcomes will be to improve everyday coaching conversations and to learn to strategically apply science to human performance.

  • Understand the direction of the company’s movement pattern
