You don’t need to be a mediator to use the techniques to have great conversations and address conflict. Join the UMB Workplace Mediation Service (WMS) this month to learn and practice mediator techniques. 

October is Conflict Resolution Month, and WMS will celebrate with several activities. Throughout the month, WMS will highlight mediator techniques that you can use at work, when teleworking or on campus, and approaches to addressing conflict.

All events will be held virtually:

Oct. 21, noon-1 p.m.: Webinar: Tele-conflicting: Addressing Conflict from a Distance — Joint Telework Open Forum with HR's Organization & Employee Development

Oct. 28, noon-1 p.m.: Coworker Feud Game: A communication competition*

Visit the WMS website for more details. 

*Participate or be an audience member to enter to win a free one-hour conflict management training for your office.

The Workplace Mediation Service is a free, voluntary, and confidential resource for workplace conflicts. Mediation services are available to all UMB employees (staff, faculty, and student employees).
