Dealing with Conflict in Rowing

Royal Roads University (Victoria, BC)
Saturday, July 6th 9:00-11:00 AM

Register HERE.

Rowing BC desires to support its community members in learning strategies to deal with the inevitable conflicts that can and do arise. This workshop is part of a three part series being hosted throughout 2019. Part 1 was offered specifically to Umpires at their January 2019 Annual Seminar. Part 2 is being offered in July to all members of the BC rowing community. Part 3 will be offered in association with the Rowing BC AGM in November 2019 for all members of the BC rowing community.

Each of these sessions will be focused on building a solid foundation for conflict resolution, providing participants with a common language and toolkit for dealing with difficult people. Sessions will provide an experiential learning opportunity for practice and application of tools and skills introduced. Sessions will be based on activities and application of knowledge and skills that require all participants to engage. All activities will be applicable to the specific culture of Rowing BC and enable participants to explore how they can translate what they learn into a ‘real life’ context.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be equipped with strategies and skills to minimize and diffuse tense situations with difficult people, to avoid the escalation of conflict and to engage more strongly in problem solving and collaboration. Participants will have a common language and toolkit that can be used across the organization, enabling Rowing BC’s members to more effectively deal with difficult people and ultimately, make a difference in dealing with conflict more constructively.

Sessions will be facilitated by Patricia Galaczy.
