Event description

Description

This pre-Nebraska Bike/Walk Summit workshop is sponsored by the Nebraska Bicycling Alliance, American Planning Association - Nebraska and Omaha by Design.

Conflict is present in all aspects of life, and certainly when it comes to advocacy and community development. Left unmanaged, conflict can escalate. This interactive workshop will explore skills to effectively manage conflict at work, at home and in life.
Participants will explore the dynamics of conflict and reflect upon their personal approach to conflict, appreciate the various roles we take when we encounter conflict, learn how to prepare for and conduct difficult conversations, identify how to effectively deal with High Conflict Personalities, and practice conflict management techniques.
The workshop will be conducted by Mary Lee Brock, Assistant Professor of Negotiation and Conflict Resolution at Creighton University. Mary Lee has extensive experience in conflict mediation, facilitation and negotiation in her work with families, community groups, business and government entities. Workshop will be highly interactive and training methodologies will include large and small group discussion, lecture, written exercises, case studies, self-assessment, role play and group activities.
Cost: $10, pre-registration is required. A boxed lunch will be served. Refunds available until 2/1/2018.

UNO is easily accessible via Metro Transit Route 2. Bicycle parking is available in several locations. Vehicle parking is available in Lot E. (Give the attendant the name of the workshop.
