Dialogue Not Disaster

May 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm MDT


During times of contention and heightened emotions, how can we distinguish between debate and dialogue? Why is it important not only for us to make that distinction, but to intentionally utilize tools that encourage a healthy dialogue? Come discuss this and more with The Conflict Center. We will explore barriers to respectful conversation, practice dialogue techniques, and discuss when to engage and when to walk away.

Join us for this FREE community event.

This workshop is part of our “Electing to Create Opportunity from Chaos: The 2020 Election Series”. Our other workshops include:

Contempt, Division and (re)Finding Humanity during the Election Season

You Can’t Unfriend Everybody

Don’t Mind Me… I’ll be Over Here Breathing

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
