Elections Have Ended: Let's Share Our Conflict Resolution Expertise

Posted by Walter.Brynjolfson

This year, Conflict Resolution Week (November 3rd to 10th) follows closely on the federal election. Canadians have experienced some tense political discourse over important issues facing the country, and we know that such discourse can lead to divisions and discomfort in families, friend groups, and workplaces.

How can we apply our conflict resolution skills and experience to support healthy debate, heal divisions, and build strength in our communities?

Let’s focus our efforts on Conflict Resolution Week, on the many opportunities to support greater understanding and healing – in interpersonal conflicts and across broader, social discourse.

Sharing Your Knowledge

We are hoping to draw on (and showcase) the wisdom and experience of our roster mediators in a series of blog posts, op-eds, videos, etc. that speak to building collaboration post-election.

If you’re interested in sharing your thoughts — whether in a blog post, a social media post, a small opinion piece for a municipal newspaper, a video, or anything else—let us know! Our staff will collect everyone’s contributions and share them more broadly. The more content we have, the better our coverage is likely to be, of course.

Do you have tips to offer individuals, groups, workplaces, teams, etc. on how to move through differences and build better understanding? Or perhaps you’d like to brainstorm possible ideas?

Let us know. We hope to draw attention to the importance of conflict resolution practices during #CRW2019 and to highlight the many strengths of our roster mediators at the same time.
