Christine PeringerMediator and conflict coach, Christine will share the fundamentals of Collaborative Communication — an approach that supports you to navigate conflict with integrity, inclusiveness and in a way that will build the kind of environment in which people effectively work together.

Collaborative Communication is a process that will help you move beyond our commonly-held aversion to conflict by providing positive steps to use in conflict situations.  Based on “nonviolent communication” as pioneered by American psychologist Dr. Marshall Rosenberg ( this approach provides a roadmap for difficult conversations, how to speak honestly without attacking, how to tune in to what others might really want and how to guide yourself and the interaction in a way that builds trust and creates a more harmonious and smooth-functioning workplace.
