Everyday Conflict Coaching
The purpose of conflict coaching training is to equip you to help others resolve conflict and reconcile relationships without your direct involvement in the conflict. This first course is aimed at the kinds of everyday conflicts and conversations we have with friends, family members, colleagues and others.
Ashley Saunders has seen the destructive side of conflict - as Solicitor and Pastor; and has also seen conflict redeemed to God's glory. Now Australian CEO of Christian aid and advocacy ministry, Barnabas Fund, he has acted as a mediator and trainer for PeaceWise since 2010 and deeply believes in the power of biblical peacemaking. Ashley was admitted as a Solicitor in NSW in 1983 and prior to becoming a pastor, he also served as a lecturer in aspects of Contract and Industrial Law, and as an alderman.
Bronwynne has been involved with PeaceWise since 2010 working as a coach, mediator and trainer. She has a passion for helping people reconcile with God and each other, whether in marriages, families, schools, ministries or business. Bronwynne is a trained counsellor, and also works in lay ministry and has experienced the pain of conflict handled poorly. She loves to train organisations in Biblical principles that deepen an individual's understanding of conflict, and give them a structure and confidence to step towards challenges, being reminded of how God loves us in our mess as He seeks to restore us.
Bronwynne loves hanging out with her adult kids, their partners and Stuart, her husband and sidekick of now 33 yrs, generally around great food, with all being foodies. She loves entertaining and welcoming people, travelling to far away places, laughing and when there is a spare moment to read a good novel.
In this training, aimed at the kinds of everyday conflicts and conversations we have with friends, family members, colleagues and neighbours, you will:
learn how Personal Peacemaking principles learnt in earlier courses can be used in conflict coaching
discover a simple 4-part process to help someone respond to a conflict they are facing

explore listening skills and the role of good questions
learn how to gently probe deeper to explore the role of the human heart
see ways to use Scripture to speak to the heart
equip someone to have difficult conversations
have the opportunity to put it into practice!
For persons such as those in full time pastoral ministry, teachers or lawyers, if the content of the training is relevant to your professional development or continuing accreditation or education requirements you may claim one 'unit' for each hour of attendance, subject to the rules of the relevant programme.
