Constructively Managing Conflicts

For doctoral and postdoctoral researchers

Monday, October 29th 2018 | 10.00 am – 6.00 pm | AM 02

Dr. Gregory Bond


This workshop for young academics will focus on the needs of participants, considering their own experience with conflicts in professional and academic contexts and working on ways to manage conflicts efficiently. There will be many practical exercises, as well as feedback and reflection on communication in conflict situations.

Themes include:

  • Recognising and reflecting your own conflict behaviours
  • Alternative approaches to conflict. When and how can a conflict be managed constructively?
  • Typical conflict settings in academia
  • Communication and conflict: active listening, empathy, interests, options for resolution
  • Conflict management methods and paradigms: peer mentoring, coaching, negotiation, third-party interventions, mediation
