Everyday conflict coaching e-course

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.

Bruce Burgess

Bruce Burgess is married to Helen and they have two adult children.  He is National Director and one of the founders of PeaceWise and was Australia’s first Certified Christian ConciliatorTM. He holds degrees in Arts, Law, Christian Studies and Theology and is an international conference speaker. Bruce’s peacemaking work has led him to become involved in teaching and working with schools, workplace disputes, church and para-church based conflict, and victim-offender cases. Bruce has a passion for seeing both adults and childrens’ lives transformed by the power of the gospel of peace, for building cultures and communities of peace.  He loves seeing God break through to repair, restore and sustain healthy relationships.  Bruce constantly thanks God for being the amazing God of peace that he is, who has provided so much help, wisdom and grace for living life.
