Class One Practicing What We Value
This Session will explore our implicit biases and cultural, familial and societal conditioning about conflict and leadership, in order to shed light on why we turn towards certain conflict and leadership styles when under duress.
Restorative Leadership Matrix and Conflict Styles: implicit bias and conditioning around conflict and leadership that create tendencies to respond in particular ways when we are under duress or feeling low capacity.
“Conflicts as Property”: exploring Nils Christie’s idea of “conflicts as property” and our collective tendency to “give our conflicts away” rather than using them as fodder for community building, learning, re-calibration, and re-engagement.
Class Two: What is Our System?
What’s Working, What’s Not: Creating Agreements & Mapping Policy
~What do we collectively value?
~What is our Org’s current conflict or justice system and how well does it match our collective values?
~How implicit or explicit is this system?
To what extent did we inherit vs. co-create it?
How fair or just is the system to those who are harmed, those who harm others and those who are impacted (or impacting) the harm? Do we want to tweak it?
Typical breakdowns in restorative systems and how to address them
Emphasis on honest evaluation of system and willingness to come to table together to re-structure agreements
The 5 R’s (respect, responsibility, relationship, repair, reintegration) and the 4 W’s. (Who, what, where, why)
