Overcoming Conflict with Collaboration:
The theme of this conference series is Healing the Divide: A Participatory Focus on the Role of Conflict Resolution Practitioners, Partners, and Stakeholders in a Divided Community. In this workshop, we will explore the relationship of collaboration to overcoming conflict in our divided society and with relevant issues and immediate needs in our communities. The Collaboration Effect based on neuroscience is all about connecting relationships, listening actively, and educating judiciously to build bridges to negotiate closure. As mediators, circle keepers, and all of our varieties of ways of being, how do we do this with participants for business versus as volunteers? What techniques do we use and what are best practices? A panel of presenters will explore how they overcome conflict with collaboration in their lives and work in Minnesota and the Twin Cities.
