Conflict Management at Camp and in Life

Join a Virtual Training Workshop on Wednesday 13 October 2021, 18:00-19:45 CET with Menahem Kanafi

Conflict is part of all personal interaction – but whether it is hurtful and damaging, or empowering and productive depends on how we manage it.

As camp leaders, we are confronted with different sorts of conflict every day – conflict between campers, between staff, between campers and staff – them and us. Conflict does not necessarily mean destroying relationships – that depends on you.

Turning conflict from a destructive clash into an opportunity for growth is a learnable skill which can be applied in as widely varied situations as disputes between campers, through salary negotiations and even nuclear disarmament talks.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn about:

  • Stages of conflict
  • Different conflict management styles and strategies (including your own!)
  • Communication and negotiation skills which will help you diffuse conflict and turn it into an opportunity for strengthening your relationships.

This workshop is for camp unit heads and roshim by invitation only.

NB: the workshop will take place at 18:00-19:45 pm CET (17:00-18:45 UK, 19:00-20:45 Baltics and Bulgaria).
