Read about a one-of-a-kind residential program in Bangalore that aims at equipping individuals from the for-profit as well as non-profit sector with essential tools in dealing with conflict, complexity, diversity and change in a constructive and creative manner.
Meta-Culture (http://www.meta-culture.in/) is South Asia’s first organization dedicated to making relationships more effective. It is their business to break impasses, address conflict and facilitate decision-making. Their methodologies – Dialogue facilitation, mediation and consensus building – are used in the corporate, social and government sectors.
Ah!wake is an attempt at transforming the way we perceive ourselves and the world around us. The workshop brings together several core skills: critical and creative thinking and collaborative problem solving. During Meta-Culture’s nine years of practice they have found that these skills are immensely valuable for successfully handling conflicts. Participants will introspect and reflect on their values, and motivations. They will also learn how to appreciate diversity and therefore engage constructively with people who think differently from them. Ah!Wake is inspired by the need to look afresh and creatively at the state of the world we live in. The complexity of local and global problems precludes easy or conventional solutions.
The course outline on Meta-Culture’s website describes what the four days of this experiential workshop will entail: http://www.meta-culture.in/Ah!Wake.php. The curriculum has been designed based on years of professional and academic experience in the field of conflict resolution. Participant takeaways include a heightened sense of self awareness and skills and dispositions to navigate through contemporary complexities.
Update: The dates of the workshop have been moved to July 3-6th, 2014. So you could still register if you haven’t already!
