The training program will be a hybrid format – 6 weeknight evening sessions on Zoom and 2 full-day in person sessions (at the Cummings Center in Beverly MA), as well as pre-recorded video modules to be reviewed in between live sessions. You’ll learn principles of conflict management through presentations, exercises, discussions, and role-plays, guided by experienced trainers and coaches.
