Conflict Resolution! (Workshop)

Most people use five approaches to restore harmony. Do you know your style? With the use of work sheets, role-plays and activities we will develop leadership skills and uncover the true reasons for anger, how we usually handle our anger (or how it handles us), and how we can learn to manage our anger by choosing a response instead of unconsciously reacting.
