“Social healing is made up of spacemoments of resonance, voices touching voices in a common space.” John Paul Lederarch

Join us for an introduction to St Ethelburga’s approach to coaching through conflict. In these challenging times, how can we approach conflict in a way that opens communication and bridges divides? As public discourse and social media drives us further into echo chambers, how can we seek the opportunity hidden within conflict – to learn, grow and transform? This is an online event. 

Conflict coaching is a highly effective intervention suitable for people who are currently experiencing conflict in their professional or personal lives.  Coaching through conflict prevents tensions and differences from escalating, and empowers individuals to understand and resolve conflict effectively.

In this session we will:

  • Create a respectful container for learning and deeper enquiry
  • Introduce some of the key elements of St Ethelburga’s philosophy and approach to conflict coaching
  • Explore the meaning and value of conflict transformation
  • Guide people through 4 steps in a reflective journey on how conflicts look through the lenses of identity, power, emotion and opportunity
  • Provide participants with our “Coaching through Conflict” handbook

This session takes place on Zoom from 15:00pm – 19:00pm BST. Participants will receive a Zoom link a few hours before we begin.
