This session will explore the value of collaboration and engagement as a critical component of effective conflict management. Engaging multiple parties in dialogue about the issues that matter, frequently offers an opportunity to reduce risk and produce better outcomes.  ADR practitioners often find themselves involved in conflicts, particularly public conflicts, which have escalated and in some cases, spiraled out of control.  Avoid conflict in the first place through effective engagement and collaboration - an extremely valuable approach to issues management. This session will focus on providing participants with an understanding of the following:

• The nature of public disputes and the spiral of unmanaged conflict
• How engagement differs from consultation
• The benefits and value of an engagement paradigm
• The role of the convergence facilitator
• Tips, Tools & Techniques for:
   o    Running Great Meetings & Achieving Great Results
   o    Effective Convergence Facilitation
   o    Engaging Stakeholders & Shareholders (Rights Holders)
   o    Managing Challenging Behaviour
   o    Managing Difficult Conversations
• Recognizing the Trap of Too Much Engagement
