This live, online course will support PEI non-profit organizations with the skills and tools to prevent escalated situations of conflict by building collaborative work environments.
Do We Really Have To Worry About Psychologically Unsafe Work Environments In PEI?
Almost a third of workers in North America experience nearly constant conflict, with a whopping 85% experiencing some
level of conflict in the workplace. Statistics Canada tells us over 10% of PEI workers are already at the level of stress that
leads to reporting harassment.
It’s a rare workplace that doesn’t have some level of conflict. And that’s not a bad thing – effectively managed conflict
can lead to positive change, innovation and strengthened relationships. When conflict is not effectively managed,
however, it can lead to high levels of stress, poor communication, absence, sickness and departure from the workplace.
The statistics regarding conflict leading to sickness and/or absenteeism are doubled for the non-profit sector.
The need for skills and support for both managers and workers to build and contribute to healthy and collaborative
workplaces is great. Paramount among the hallmarks of a psychologically healthy workplace are collaboration, effective
and respectful communication, and healthy work relationships. Training of employers and workers is the biggest driver
for high-quality outcomes in these areas.

Who Is The Program For?
The program is best suited for organizations with everyday conflicts- those that haven’t reached a stage of crises. The program will focus on conflict prevention and building understanding and agreement, rather than on resolving high level conflict. If you’re not sure whether the program would be suitable for your organization, I can help you decide. Send me an email and we’ll chat.
What You’ll Walk Away With:
You’ll finish the course with a process you can use over and over to build understanding and prevent conflict, a team with raised awareness about how to build awareness about, and a team built-action plan that includes the steps they want to put in place to keep the momentum going.
