Everyday Conflict Coaching online 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.

Our presenters

Ashley Saunders

 

Ashley Saunders  

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.

Jane Gibb

 

Jane holds a degree in education, a reflection of her lifelong passion for learning and helping others to learn.  She has served in the church in many capacities and enthusiastically embraces opportunities to engage people with the transforming truth of Christ. As a trainer, Jane brings personal stories of her own transformation through a lifetime of trying hard, failing and falling into grace. A teacher, coach, conciliator and child of God, she wants everyone to know that God’s love has power to change our hearts.

 

Description

In this online 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

  • consider the character elements of a good conflict coach

  • 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.
