Part I: Understanding Patterns of Congregational Conflict, February 16 and 18, 2010
This workshop/webinar is the first in a three part series exploring congregational conflict. Congregations like other organizations experience conflict regularly. This conflict can be productive, spurring creativity and growth or destructive leading to polarization and paralysis. The first tool in making conflict more productive is analysis-developing the capacity to understand the sources of conflict so that destructive patterns can be identified and transformed.
