So, how can you get off the Not-So-Merry-Go-Round of Conflict? In my last post I explored how conflict begins – when our sense of identity, values and needs are challenged and we get triggered.

Confronted by the disturbance we feel when our body is flooded with cortisol and other stress hormones, it’s human nature to want to make sense of what’s happening. Humans need to explain what led to these impacts.

With our primitive emotional brain screaming out that we are in danger we quickly develop a view of the situation that paints ourselves as the innocent victim, while the apparent source of our distress emerges as the classic evil villian.

Anyone recognise what I’m talking about? Think about the last time you discussed a hot conflict. If it was a film script how would you cast yourself? How would you cast the other person? Who comes out looking better? Chances are your narrative is flavored with a little self-serving bias.

Developing Skill and Wisdom in Facilitation

with Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder

8-11 September 2016

In this workshop we will use the methodology of Process Work to guide us in developing new skills. Process Work is a dynamic neo-Jungian method that I have worked with for over 30 years. The last 15 years I have been applying this methodology with significant success in working with organizational clients in individual, team and whole system facilitation. In this workshop we will explore the foundational skills of Process Work including eldership, structural awareness, emerging processes, edge work and system approaches to change, and apply them in experiential exercises. This methodology of facilitated supervision is an advanced approach in cultivating our skills as facilitators and will occur throughout the workshop.

The second area of focus will be in developing our deep sense of values and wisdom in our lives and work. We will explore the importance of wisdom in our work, how this can be developed over time and practices that can assist us in this process. In this sense the workshop will be a time of focus on both our skill and personal development as facilitators.
