Bring Trainings to Your Community!
On-site Trainings are a good way to bring personalized training to you. If you’re looking for a particular program tailored to your community, on-sites are designed with you in mind.
Our spotlight this week is the League’s “Conflict Resolution” program. The purpose of this program is to identify sources of conflict, your typical responses to those sources of conflict, and identify constructive choices for dealing effectively with the conflict. In addition, once problems have been identified, you’ll learn how to identify strategies for reaching agreement and resolution on those problems.
If you would like to schedule an on-site training, please contact Katie Holda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-669-6352.
