Module Details

Teachers, parents and students are coming back to school after a 20 month hiatus. Each of these stakeholders have been in the confines of their home working individually during the pandemic. During this time everyone has gone through their share of personal setbacks and emotional upheaval. When all of them come together for offline school there is bound to be personal baggage, emotional stress and conflicts. This workshop will help discuss and deal with conflict management and problems solving as we begin offline school.

It is important to have conflicts. Conflict is a necessary evil but can be constructive if handled well. A team that always agrees unanimously is unlikely to bring creativity or alternative ideas, thus stifling innovation and restricting growth. Unfortunately, workplace conflicts, whether personal or team conflicts, create barriers and lead to an unnecessarily prolonged decision-making process. Therefore, effective Problem Solving and Conflict Management involves supporting and requiring consistent, respectful, and effective discussion and resolution of issues, failing which there could severe personal and professional consequences.

This workshop will cover the following:
1. Definitions & examples of conflicts
2. Skills needed to resolve conflicts & solve problems
3. Conflicting situations in various scenarios
4. Conflicts among colleagues, within family, between teacher and student, between teacher and parent, between online and offline scenario
6. Hands on activities/strategies.
