Here at NFP Connect we offer support, connection and education through various events, for those working for and with local charities and not-for-profits.
Our NFP Connect Breakfast is predominantly for not-for-profit employees, owners, leaders and anyone related to the field or interested in the monthly topic.
We also run peer to peer mentoring, coffee catch up and planning workshops throughout the year.
How do you do conflict? Are you an Otter, Beaver, Golden Retriever and/or a Lion?
Conflict is a natural and normal part of any relationship, including workplace relationships. For the November breakfast we will distinguish between constructive and dysfunctional conflict; as well as consider the characteristics of change and tension in the NFP sector that impact our workplace relationships.
We will avoid the temptation to share too many war stories. Instead the presentation will focus on recognising, acknowledging and adaptively embracing as well as responding to conflict in the workplace.
