Building on the idea that we are more effective in our work when we can be authentic and natural, this workshop will challenge your judgments and assumptions - and help you become more curious!
As Conflict Professionals, we are called on to help our clients manage feelings of hurt, anger and defensiveness. They often have a very narrow view of what is possible. Judgments and assumptions abound. Our job is to help them move through their difficulties and open themselves up to the many possibilities for the future. But this is not easy.
We need to be aware that we, just like our clients, are influenced by our own judgments and assumptions. In our professional roles, we are applauded for sound judgment and strong analytical skills. Clients ask us for advice, making it a challenge to deliver a client-centred process that focuses on the clients’ abilities to make their own decisions.
In this 1 day workshop, we will explore our own judgments and assumptions and learn how to be "productively" curious. With a combination of experiential learning, and self-exploration, you will learn how to be effective in asking questions, more natural in your responses, and more authentic in your practice. We also think that playing with curiosity will help you enjoy your life more!
Starting at 9:00 a.m.and ending at 4:30 p.m. on August 16, 2017. We will have time to experiment with curiosity using a fact situation that will be familiar to all conflict professionals - with high emotion and communication obstacles.
This workshop will provide 7 hours of professional development. An expanded description is available for those who need one for PD credit.
Participants will book their own accommodations. Charlottetown is a pretty, walkable city with many options, If you are looking for recommendations, just get in touch with us!
