Event Description

The Land Use and Environmental Mediation Focus Group is pleased to have Jeff Bean, with Beyond the Courthouse Mediation & Facilitation, and Martha Bean, with Resolve, at its June meeting to present on Balancing & Illuminating Power:  Exploring Approaches to Power in Conflict Dynamics.   A description from the presenters:

Some professionals believe that power dynamics in disputes require a positional or adversarial approach, believing they can't be managed effectively in a collaborative process. Others believe they don't belong in a collaboration at all or that they must be “balanced.”

We think differently. Explore with us how power dynamics can be constructively managed in a collaborative process using an approach we call Power Illumination.

We're reprising a two-hour workshop from the 2012 Northwest Dispute Resolution Conference presented to high reviews:

Loved the format - very effective.
Very well-organized and effective presentation to introduce an alternative to “balancing power.”
Wonderful to see mediators grappling with the issues of power.  Exciting to gain additional insight and ideas.
Left with useful thinking to apply directly to my mediation practice.
I learned about illuminating power instead of trying to neutralize it or hide it – good stuff.
Great interactive session.

To focus our discussions we'll first watch a fishbowl role-play demonstration of power dynamics in a multi-party land use context. Afterward you can continue the discussion in the on-line collaborative workspace developed for these workshops, the Power in Conflict Network (PowerInConflict.ning.com).
