Dealing with Conflicts in Co-ops

Chris Whyte      3 Nov 2022      Online Event      CHF BC event

6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. | Zoom

Conflict will always be part of living in a community. This workshop will explore when to involve the co-op in a dispute and when not to.  We will also look at what gets in the way of effective responses to conflicts and review the options that are available to co-ops for the resolution of disputes.

When asked if they have successfully resolved the majority of member conflicts over the past thirty years, most co-ops respond with a resounding “No”. To build strong communities in our co-ops, we need to have a basic understanding of conflict and be clear about our role in resolving disputes.

This workshop will cover:
  • Brief overview of why and how different types of conflict occur
  • How to depersonalize conflict
  • The Board’s role in handling conflict
  • How to prevent conflict and the role of good governance and strong management
  • Opportunities to redefine the co-op’s role with Model Rules 2.0
