On October 12, 2012, at noon Eastern time, Dorothy Della Noce will be leading an hour long teleseminar, sponsored by the Conflict Coaching Committee/Work Place Section of the Association for Conflict Resolution:
Coaching: What Does it Mean to “Help” with Conflict Interaction?
In this teleconference, participants will explore two important questions for coaching practitioners – (1) What is the coach helping the client with? and (2) How can the coach help? – through the lens of conflict transformation theory. Conflict transformation theory is a useful approach to conflict coaching because it offers a well-articulated model of conflict, conflict dynamics, the motivations of people in conflict, and the concrete processes of conflict transformation. Thus, it provides a coaching practitioner with a cohesive framework for understanding the client’s experience of conflict, what makes it a negative experience, and how it can be transformed into a positive experience.
