Event Summary:
Workers are returning to the office & worksite, workplaces that had closed are reopening and essential services are settling into a new normal. Employees and clients are anxious about how the new rules will work and whether they will be placed at risk by being back at work or re-engaging as consumers of goods and services in person. Business owners and social service leaders are anxious about maintaining viable business models and funding while supporting their employees.

How will COVID19 affect how people handle conflict at work? How should we handle a clash in values and fears as the rules change? What if people can't agree? How can we be role models for addressing conflict in a healthy way so that we can focus on getting the work done?

Presentation Facilitator(s): Cherolyn Knapp, Knapp Industries, is a conflict resolution consultant, mediator, trainer, and workplace investigator  based  in  Victoria,  BC.  A  passionate  problem -solver  Cherolyn understands  that  most people prefer to  resolve conflict than endure the cost and uncertainty of legal proceedings. Cherolyn worked in human resources, non-profit and business management roles before becoming a lawyer and experiencing conflict from the eye of the storm. Her 15 years of legal practice covered a range of legal issues  including employment  and  human  rights,  construction,  breach  of  contract, commercial, property,  estates,  and family disputes.  Cherolyn is  a dynamic  speaker and facilitator, sought after for her workshops on negotiation and conflict resolution.  
Presentation Facilitator(s): Allison Greaves, is a lifelong learner with a passion for people! She founded BuildingWell after recognizing the need for support in the industry. She holds a diploma in HR Management, is a CPHR Candidate and currently works as the HR Manager at Durwest Construction Management. Allison’s goal is to see her colleagues in the industry thrive and succeed thanks to a network of individuals with a common goal.
BuildingWell is a Community of Practice (CoP) envisioned by Allison Greaves in partnership with CPHR BC & Yukon Vancouver Island.
