The plays are created and performed by UBC faculty and staff participating in the Rehearsing Conflict workshop series (June 13-20). Members of the UBC community have come together to share and act out stories of conflict in order to find solutions, challenge assumptions, and build understanding.
Our free workshop performance will involve reflection on the difficult conversations we can face in the workplace, and there will be space for interactive community dialogue. As a forum theatre performance, there will be an invitation to audience members to take part in the action if they choose, but all participation is voluntary. Together, we will consider how we can move through blockages to authentic and productive communication during workplace conflict.
Two of our leadership programs are accepting applications for their upcoming cohorts:
Community Leadership Program
The UBC Community Leadership Program (CLP) is an innovative leadership development opportunity designed for emerging staff, faculty, and graduate student leaders to enhance their leadership, lead and develop a team, develop practical project management skills, and learn how to build community. Applications for this year’s program are due June 14.
The Rehearsing Conflict workshop series, June 13-20, 2019, is a free professional development opportunity for faculty and staff who want to explore and practice new strategies for difficult conversations, strengthen emotional intelligence, and increase resilience when conflict occurs in the workplace.
Using the situation and tools of theatre, participants will play out real stories of conflict from our community and apply new strategies to change outcomes. All UBC employees are welcome to apply.
