Alternative Dispute Resolution Workshop

Toronto: July 19-22 or September 27-30

At this four-day workshop, you will discover the time-proven process to find win-win solutions to nearly any conflict thereby saving time, reducing costs, eliminating litigation and preserving valuable relationships. You will learn how to use Principled Negotiation, developed at Harvard, and learn how to mediate disputes. You will develop the practical skills and techniques you need to resolve disputes effectively and with confidence. This workshop will give you the tools to manage conflict constructively in the workplace and at home.

Due to the ever-increasing costs of conflict in the workplace, employers are increasingly turning to ADR as a solution. Employee conflict, labour disputes and discrimination claims in particular are increasingly common and employers need to take steps to stem the tide of conflict and lawsuits. ADR is an effective means to accomplish this goal. It is also the tool used by professional mediators to resolve conflicts between disputing parties.

ADR seeks to resolve conflict by cultivating cooperation and understanding. It seeks to find a solution that allows both parties to win. Above all, it seeks to protect the relationship while solving the problem.

We offer intensive and interactive learning experiences for professionals and executives. You will participate in dynamic exercises and case studies, with two-way and coached feedback. The concepts and approaches you will learn have proven successful in the real world, and can be applied immediately to your situation.
