About "Navigate Power Dynamics in Conflicts: Cross-Cultural Communication Series Workshop 3"
It isn’t just about what we say that may lead to a disagreement or dispute with a team member, but it’s also about how and why we say it that can cause a conflict. Understanding people’s culture, identity and privilege can help us identify how power, intersectionality and language impact how people feel and react during conflicts. Using the Intercultural Conflict Styles Inventory (ICS®) model and group discussion, Wilder trainers Cardina Esparza and Nell Goepel will help you:
- Recognize power, intersectionality and language and their impact on disagreements and conflict resolution
- Remain engaged in the dialogue when disputes become difficult
- Focus on identifying, managing and resolving the conflict
- Building a shared narrative and complete story about the conflict

- Help you cope with the stress of power differentials and their negative consequences.
- Help initiate conversations, remain flexible and get past judgements and disagreements.
- Increase self-awareness of your approach to problem-solving
