Conflict in co-ops: just deal with it!

Conflict will always be part of living in a community. But it doesn't have to be negative if handled properly and not just ignored. To build strong communities in our co-ops, we need to understand conflict and how to deal with it positively. This hands-on workshop will include presentations, exercises, role-playing and group discussion. We'll cover:

  • why and how different types of conflict occur
  • what kind of conflict the co-op needs (and doesn't need) to deal with
  • how to depersonalize conflict
  • the board's role in handling conflict
  • how to prevent conflict.
