In the current national environment, tensions are extremely high. Divisiveness and confrontation are the automatic reactions to many disagreements. As leaders, how do we ensure our relationships foster a collaborative, forward thinking posture? How do we lead with resilience and encouragement to promote sustainable working relationships?
Many federal agencies have alternative dispute resolution programs to resolve workplace disputes. Similarly, community mediation works to solve disputes but amongst the various community stakeholders.
This workshop will discuss the community mediation principles that leaders can use to ensure that the organizational and community relationships persevere through the tensions.
