Conflicts in teams and groups can be exhausting. Although everyone might share the same vision, conflicting parties can be blocking each other, even up to until one or several people leave the group or the project as a whole gets stuck.

In this workshop we want to take the very first steps on how to deal with conflicts in a constructive and respectful way. How to talk about conflicts without escalating through mutual accusations and interpretations? What settings are needed? What about power dynamics and different approaches to conflicts in diverse groups – how can a team create a climate that enables everyone to speak up.

Bio: Marianne is a Mediator and Holistic Security Trainer. Being an activist herself, she trains other activists how to facilitate conflicts in grassroot groups and diverse teams. She is based in Germany.
