Event Description

The Quinnipiac Law School Center on Dispute Resolution has a number of upcoming workshops that can help people solve problems and work more efficiently thereby reducing stress and conflict.

 

Quinnipiac is offering nonprofits a 15% discount on enrollment (use discount code GNH). For three or more people from the same organization they can arrange an additional discount.

 

The sessions are highly interactive with limited enrollment to allow people to learn and practice news skills. Brief information is below and detailed information and registration about the workshops may be found at: https://www.qulawdisputeresolution.org/center-trainings/.

 

The discount would apply to the following workshops:

 

  *   Negotiation When Relationships Matter - September 14-15. Based on the principles of interest-based negotiation, participants will learn about how to maintain and preserve relationships when negotiating. We focus on negotiation styles, common errors and barriers to agreement and how to structure the negotiation process.

  *   Mediation Skills for Leaders  - November 8-9. This workshop focuses on core mediation skills that people anywhere in an organization can use to help work teams, business partners and others solve difficult and divisive issues. Participants will learn how to assess and map conflicts, identify and frame issues and use key communication and negotiation skills in an informal mediation setting.

  *   Deliberative Dialogue Moderator Training  - April 18-19, 2018. Using the National Issues Forum model participants will learn how to moderate deliberative dialogues, one of many tools that we can use to bring citizens together to reason, talk and to deliberate about contentious public policy issues facing our society. We will guide participants through the process of how issues are framed for public deliberation, how to help organizations convene and organize such forums, and how to facilitate a deliberative dialogue.

Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

#CraftingSomethingGreat in Duluth

In an op-ed for the Duluth News Tribune, Pam Kramer enumerates the plans, investments, collaborations and creative sparks that have turned an area of blight and brownfield into the Lincoln Park Craft District. The humming, entrepreneurial neighborhood has become a model for how to leverage local craft manufacturing to fuel community revitalization, says Duluth LISC’s executive director.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
