These in-person seminars are usually half-day or full-day events. Unique seminars of any length can also be crafted to fit your needs. They are biblical, interactive, fun, penetrating, and relevant to the present culture of conflict that has laid siege to practically every area of our lives.
Seminars are typically commissioned by churches, schools, or other professional organizations, either for open registration (as a vehicle for cross-organization and/or community outreach) or for closed registration (if an organization has a particular focus to address with its members).
Four main types of conciliation events are available across a wide range of scheduling options from two-hour weekly sessions to all-day intensive meetings over several consecutive days.
Coaching helps one party in conflict resolve conflict personally. This service resembles biblical counseling with distinctive education features.
Mediation helps two or more parties in conflict find relational healing together. Married couples, families, and organizations experience this type well. Mediations usually occur in an intensive, all-day format between two and five days and include pre-event preparation for each party.
Interventions are for larger groups of parties within an organization who are professionally connected. This type can include coaching, mediation, training and education, consulting, and culture assessment.
Case Management is the vital glue that brings conciliations together. It includes administration services, logistics coordination to ensure the event happens in a timely and well-coordinated manner, and client coaching to prepare for the conciliation event.
For all four types of conciliation events, all parties are required to read or listen to either The Peacemaker by Ken Sande or Resolving Everyday Conflict by Ken Sande and Kevin Johnson. These books provide crucial foundations in concepts and vocabulary used in conciliations.
