See http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q6.5 -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- At Trillium Hollow we have a Positive Engagement Team (PET), whose mandate is to nurture the growth of a culture at Trillium Hollow in which community members engage with one another in positive ways to work through conflict. PET will do this by supporting education and training, and by working directly with members experiencing conflict in the community. When working directly with conflict in the community PET and/or its members will: o Listen empathically to members and/or teams and help them clarify their issues/concerns and establish a communication channel that would be useful in resolving the issue, o Help any individual or team in dispute to gain access to a coach or facilitator that is mutually agreeable to both parties, o Act as a facilitator or mediator to resolve conflicts, o Assist members or teams to seek professional help in mediation or facilitation when necessary. To build community capacity for positive engagement with conflict, PET will: o Establish a list of qualified and interested community members willing to serve as coaches, facilitators and mediators, o Organize ongoing education opportunities for learning effective communication and conflict resolution, o Introduce a set of processes to the community that provide basic conflict communication frameworks. Community members and the PET will draw from these frameworks to design a process uniquely suited to each conflict situation, o Collaborate with the Meeting Agenda Planning group to bring issues to the plenary for consideration and action where appropriate. We do not have the level of specificity that Mac describes for the group at Heartwood, so I feel grateful for this thread as a sharing space for what others are doing or aspiring to do.
