Workshop Kit: "Communication, Conflict, and Living Cooperatively"

Document Description: 
This workshop kit includes the facilitator's guide which provides a step by step breakdown of how to deliver this workshop which is the place to start. Handouts and activity sheets are also included here. People are encouraged to use the material as-is or adapt it as needed for their particular coop. The workshop is intended for coop members (but could also be modified for an external audience with some adjustments), for the purposes of educating participants so they may:
  • Articulate their own needs
  • Give feedback in an effective way
  • Have more tools for handling conflict and difficult conversations
  • Have more access and comfort with self-expression

These materials were developed for the Nickel City Housing Co-op in 2016 by Erin Hancock, through NASCO's Cooperative Internship Network.
