Those living in religious community must be prepared at times to have difficult conversations with each other in order to bring forward the voices, opinions, feelings, and ideas to generate solutions that manage conflict, which is what we call our reaction to unmet needs.
In this webinar, Fr. Quinn Conners, O.Carm. will explore the skills and approaches community members need to effectively respond to conflict. A discussion of congregational culture, common sources of conflict, and practical tools for engaging in uncomfortable or difficult conversations is included.
This NRRO cosponsored webinar is designed for individual members of Congregations as well as community leadership and healthcare providers.
This webinar is FREE for congregational members and their staff.
Please contact us for more information.
It is $59.00 for all other registrants.
