Living in the Tension Gathering – 3/5/12

For our next Living in the Tension community gathering on Monday, March 5th, Michael Pierce will be joining us to kick off a series of gatherings where he will be sharing insights with us in relation to his career in the field of conflict resolution and mediation. Michael will be sharing generalizable principles and models for conflict resolution that will help to better equip individuals to step into productive conversations and develop skills to address conflict and improve their interpersonal relationships. This first session will be touching on different styles of addressing conflict along with a self-assessment survey to help us identify our standard way of addressing conflicts.

We will be meeting on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120 at 7pm this upcoming Monday. If you would like to mark your calendar, the next session on conflict resolution will be on Monday, March 19th, at the same time and place.

Much love.
