“Navigating Conflict”
Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 at 12:15-1:30pm
CPD Approved for 1.25 Hours

Do you dread difficult conversations at work or at home and avoid them, or do you prefer to get aggressive to “win” at the first sign of a conflict? In this workshop you will be introduced to the skills and concepts from “Non-violent Communication” to approach difficult conversations and real-life conflict in manageable steps. Through experiential engagement you will gain the skills to: increase your capacity to manage inter-personal conflict; better identify what is at the heart of the conflict; increase your decision-making ability about your response options; and remain more grounded and centered.

Options for Lawyers is a networking, education and support group for lawyers making job or career transitions and for lawyers wishing to examine their options both personally and professionally. All LAP workshops are confidential and independent from the Law Society.

This group meets the third Wednesday of each month from 12:15PM to 1:30PM in Vancouver at the LAP office, 1080 Mainland Street, Suite 415.
