Conflict coaching is a way for you to become a change agent at OHSU and help create a safer, more productive workplace. Mary Lind, of the OHSU/AFSCME Careeer and Workplace Enhancement center, is offering classes now.
I'm looking for people who would have interest in participating in our upcoming Conflict Coaching Certification training, taking the full training alongside our new cohort of coaches, with the end goal to put what they can to use in their role at OHSU, act as "ambassadors" to the Conflict Coaching Program.
The benefits to the program are:
People in roles that interface with others who are experiencing conflict enhance their ability to assist them
"Natural referrers" in the organization who will point people our direction for conflict coaching services
"Natural promoters" who will invest some thought, time and energy into socializing and promoting the utilization of our coaching service
The benefits to training "Ambassadors" are:
Learn skills that will enhance your own understanding of / engagement with interpersonal conflict
Practice assisting others in conflict without taking responsibility for their problems and solutions
Learn to craft powerful questions that elicit deeper reflection and insight
Adopt a fundamental approach to interpersonal conflict that combines problem-solving with reflection, insight, and empowerment
It promises to be pretty fun as well as enlightening!
The training involves a significant time commitment: 23 hours of classroom training. I will give priority to "Ambassadors" who can participate in full, are in a position to utilize some of the coaching skills/tools in their role, have skills and aptitudes that will enhance the learning for others, and would commit to support the program through promoting it's use and referring others as appropriate.
If you would have interest, or would recommend an AFSCME staff person or leader, please let me know at your soonest convenience. Space is very limited, so no guarantees! Below are the training dates/times:
