On Wednesday this week, a one-day workshop was organised by Volunteer Wellington and facilitated by Fraser McDonald to explore the concept of Conflict Management. We were given the opportunity to discuss our experience of conflict in small groups and Fraser presented material to help us better understand the nature of conflict.
This workshop encouraged us to look for a new approach to conflict. The course material gave us a formal structured process to assist us to better manage conflict and contributions from attendees gave us some good tips and valuable insight. At the end of the day, feedback was received from attendees who said they felt better prepared to manage conflict in their workplace, and appreciated the support of their discussion group.
The course was offered as part of the Unitec Graduate Diploma in Not-For-Profit management and more information can be found at Untec’s website.
