DIY Mediation Masterclass

DIY Mediation Masterclass - open and in-house workshops

Our DIY Mediation Masterclass is a one day workshop with Marc Reid, training you in the skills, process and tools of DIY Mediation.  We include role play practice and feedback to ensure you are ready to put your DIY Mediation skills into practice.  The workshop is aimed primarily at HR professionals but is open to anyone.

Our next open DIY Mediation Masterclass is likely to take place in 2021. Please contact us to register your interest in attending.

We regularly run the DIY Mediation Masterclass in-house for HR teams.  If you would be interested in a workshop for your company we'd be happy to discuss this with you.

Workshop Overview:

The workshop covers the following:

  • Understanding conflict and approaches to dealing with conflict. 
  • Learning the skills and process of DIY Mediation to resolve conflict using the AGREE framework.
  • Practical application through structured roleplay of the process and techniques of DIY Mediation, with observation and feedback.

Our emphasis is very much on practical application using work based scenarios and role play to practice the skills and process of DIY Mediation. 

We intersperse lecture style presentation with group / individual exercises, video demonstrations based on interactive case studies and role play.  Each member of the group will have the opportunity to be the person leading the meeting to resolve the conflict with feedback provided by the trainers.

The training is the just the start of applying DIY Mediation so we provide extensive support materials and mentoring to enable you to translate what you have learned into practical application back in the workplace.
