Gehe nicht vor mir,
vielleicht folge ich nicht.
Gehe nicht hinter mir,
vielleicht führe ich nicht.
Geh neben mir
und sei mein Freund.

Focusing on Connection and Engaging with Conflict in Ways that Bring Vitality to Communities and Organizations
Workshop with Kathleen Macferran/USA

This workshop is led by Kathleen Macferran, Certified Trainer and Assessor for the Center for Nonviolent Communication,
Owner of Strength of Connection in Seattle, WA, USA

Kathleen holds a vision for a peaceful, just and sustainable world. She has worked as a Certified Trainer for the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) since 2003, is an assessor supporting assessment communities, and served on the Integration Council for the restructuring of this international organization. Community system building and conflict transformation are passions of hers.

Kathleen has worked with organizations and individuals including businesses, schools, colleges, community groups, faith-based communities, hospitals, families, prison inmates, and correctional and law enforcement employees. She serves as a lead trainer for the Freedom Project of Seattle, an organization that strengthens community safety by supporting the transformation of prisoners into peacemakers.

Kathleen offers trainings, facilitation, system building and mediation using practical skills that lead to reconciliation with ourselves, our loved ones and our communities. For over 30 years Kathleen has explored ways to restore harmony to communities including two decades as a music conductor and leader of a nonprofit organization, and seven years as a public school teacher. Kathleen is the author of and conductor for Giraffe Tales, a children’s CD setting stories to music. She is the conductor on multiple classical music recordings. Her website is where her two TEDx talks can be found.

This gathering will focus on uncovering what matters and motivates communities/organizations through conflict transformation. Finding common ground and shared purpose is not only a way to engage with conflict, but a way to energize groups as well. The clarity that emerges when we take the time to support rather than suppress conflict can lead to more effective workplaces and personal communities.

We will explore the ways individual and systemic responses to conflict are interwoven. We will also cultivate specific individual skills that lead to clarity and restoration within oneself, between individuals and in group settings, including how to support restorative dialogs. Another component of the training will explore how to co-create systemic clarity and effectiveness.
