Competences Acquired by Participants

This 5-day seminar will assist a multi-national European group of adult educators to develop their conflict management skills while helping in their personal development, learning new tools and techniques and connecting with others in a meaningful way. By actively empowering educators to handle conflicts and crises in their classrooms and in their work environments, educators are at the same time receiving an important boost in their self-confidence while acquiring important tools and techniques.
The main aims of the training are the following:

  • Provide experiential training on conflict management skills
  • Enhance the potential and understanding of conflicts, contempt and negativity in the workplace
  • Learn effective ways of engaging with others and dealing with unresolved issues
  • Become more self-reliant and self-confident in dealing with conflict and crises
  • Develop their self-reflection, communication and creativity skills and discuss how they can be utilized in an educational context
  • Help educators understand their own qualities, talents, differences and how they can utilize them in education
  • Introduce participants to working with self-reflective and arts-informed tools in order to increase their awareness and help them instigate desired change in an educational context

I think I am more possitive, at least I know that, I need to work on being more possitive and focus on what is important. There are no problems only the different ways of seeing things!

I feel more prepared to approach my students as well as my school’s principal.

The information provided and the trainer were great. Good course structure, motivated and cooperative group.

It is not possible to describe a course in one sentence, but I really needed the course to get more energy and fresh thoughts about different approaches to the problems.
