The Magic of Conflict (6/2)

The ability to respectfully deal with conflict with a sense of personal power and well-being is critical to our success, and to the success of our teams and the university.

This workshop helps participants see conflict as an opportunity and provides skills to resolve it creatively. Attendees experience how changes in self-management have a magical effect on stress level and relationships! The approach draws from principles of the non-violent martial art of Aikido, and is based on the book “The Magic of Conflict” by Thomas F. Crum. This experiential workshop facilitated by Terri Werner utilizes an interesting variety of training techniques to enhance respect for self and for others.

Participants in this workshop learn to be calm and act effectively under pressure, deal with change and complexity with power rather than paralysis, minimize stress and increase vitality in the workplace, acquire skills to resolve conflict effectively and save time, money and frustration.

This workshop is conducted in four half-day sessions, over a period of three weeks. Participants will receive two books and a course workbook. There are reading and practice assignments between sessions. We request a commitment to attend all four sessions, June 2, 9, 16 and 23, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The June 23 session begins at 8:30 a.m.

Class size is limited to 20 to maximize the participatory nature of the program, so register by May 9 by contacting Jill Weinknecht Wardell at ext. 5-1442 or jwardell@umbc.edu.
