Mediation Skills Training Institute for Church Leaders

October 1, 2018 @ 8:30 am - October 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Mediation Skills Training Institute for Church Leaders (October 1-5, 2018 Minnetonka, MN)

The Mediation Skills Training Institute is designed to equip church leaders with the skills necessary to deal effectively with interpersonal, congregational, and other forms of group conflict. The five-day institute also includes a component on congregational mediation and consultation, placed within the context of family systems theory.

Although focused primarily on the church setting, the skills learned are directly transferable to other settings. Thus, managers in business, attorneys, experienced mediators, and others in leadership will be enriched by the training as well.
