Can workplace conflict be managed simply through mediation, conflict coaching and the various other methods proposed by consultants? And what is the purpose of these methods? Is it to manage conflict? Or is it something that runs much deeper? This talk explores the importance of understanding workplace fairness in managing conflict. We will explore short, medium and long-term effects of unfairness in the workplace and discuss how to move from a culture of unfairness to a culture of fairness in the workplace. Join us as we talk with Blaine Donais, Founder and President of the Workplace Fairness Institute.

It has pioneered efforts to use information technologies to provide people from all walks of life with the information that they need in order to deal with these incredibly difficult conflicts more constructively. The Consortium sees such efforts to enhance and mobilize the skills of the general population as critical to efforts to deal with these complex, society-wide conflicts.

To break through the barriers and learn how to coexist with someone so different from yourself, we suggest you take this challenge. Sit down with someone you might find difficult to listen to...maybe someone of a different faith or cultural background and engage them in a conversation with the intent of being curious. This is not about a debate.

Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.

Nina has worked with many cultures in her decades of mediation work. She will share concepts such as the different ways of looking at fairness, how cultures respond to conflict and why they have dissimilar desires as to their goals and outcomes, how people express the same emotion in a variety of ways, and why it is a common mistake to "pretend to be in someone else's shoes". This very practical 30 minutes will help you understand some of the diversity across cultures that can create problems and explore positive steps in working through the conflict.

Hi Bedroom Playmates
Most of us spend at least 8-12 hours a day, 5 days a week or more at work. We normally leave our spouses and develop friendships and sometimes intimate relationships with our co-workers. We spend more time with our coworkers during the week than we spend with our spouses (sad).
Were you involved in a workplace affair? How did it start? How did it end? Have your partner or ex ever had a workplace affair? What was different about your partner that led you to notice the affair? Are there signs of a workplace affair? What if you and the coworker are single, does that make a difference? Is it acceptable to develop romantic relationships with your co-workers or your superiors? Have you ever slept with your boss? If so, did you do it for a promotion or did you receive any type of special treatment? What if your coworker/lover is sleeping with another co-worker? How do you handle that?
Oh boy the joys of "office politics" lol I can't wait to discuss this!
Talk to you soon....
