Join facilitation expert Laird Schaub for a webinar on how to manage the moment when conflict emerges in community.

About the event

When conflict arises in community, it’s often unclear how to best tackle it or where it even began. In this one-hour webinar, Laird will examine what’s happening in the moment when people become aware that someone – either themselves or others – goes into nontrivial reactivity.

We’ll examine how reactivity shows up, what’s going on for the individual in reaction, and the choices you have on how to respond constructively.

Join us for Managing the Moment When Conflict Emerges in Community to learn how to prepare for conflict as well as get a taste for our upcoming 6-week course, Working with Conflict in Community.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • what conflict is, and what’s happening for the individuals involved
  • what it means to respond constructively to conflict
  • why so many people are conflict avoidant, and what you can do about it

Laird Schaub

Laird’s specialty is up-tempo inclusive meetings that engage the full range of human input, teaching groups to work creatively with conflict and diversity—all the while being ruthless about capturing as much product as possible. He lived for four decades at Sandhill Farm, an income-sharing rural community that he helped found.
Laird also helped found the Foundation for Intentional Community, where he served as the main administrator for 28 years. In 1987, he created a self-insurance fund for healthcare among income-sharing communities called PEACH (Preservation of Equity Accessible for Community Health) that he ran for 22 years.
In addition to his expertise in community living, he’s parlayed his passion for good process into a consulting business focused on cooperative group dynamics, styled CANBRIDGE (Consensus And Network Building for Resolving Impasse and Developing Group Effectiveness), since 1987.
