Conflict Management and Transformation

Course Facilitators: Karl Mueller, Suzie Said, Lorinda Lee

As part of TIM Centre's partnership with Development Associates International and Tyndale Leadership Centre, Conflict Management and Transformation is Course 3 of 4 in the Certificate of Ministry and Organizational Leadership.

Conflict Management is a normal part of our lives. It happens in families, churches, ministries, organizations and communities. In Canada's multi-cultural context, cultural differences, couples with our natural tendency to "do it my way" make conflict inevitable. Most cross-cultural conflicts are rarely intentional. They occur because underlying cultural values and corresponding rules are not understood. Each culture has an intricate network of values that support the rules people use to handle conflict, so that an understanding of these differences is far more complex that one first supposes.

As Christian leaders we are called upon to seek to bring reconciliation wherever it is needed. This sometimes involves managing conflict we are personally involved in , as well as helping friends and colleagues who are in conflict with others.

This course is intended to clarify issues in interpersonal, church, ministry, organizational and cross-cultural conflicts. It is designed to provide insights on the different ways people and cultures handle conflicts, to evaluate these insights with Scriptures, and to provide practical guidelines to understand it and handle it.
