Paragon offers a wide range of services for organizations looking to deal more effectively with conflict.
We assist our clients by dealing with harassment and conflict issues, including investigations and facilitation of existing conflicts. Unique to our approach is to focus on the workplace dynamics (not just one individual) to deal with the causes of conflict (poor communication, lack of resilience etc). With a background in labour law, Tracey Lorenson is uniquely equipped to assist with conflict in the workplace with regard to collective agreement obligations, while always ensuring that the investigation or intervention does not make the problem worse.
As a Certified Corporate Coach, Tracey has demonstrated success in leaving managers with enhanced tools and strategies to prevent conflicts from reoccurring.
Our involvement can be scaled to meet your needs and your budget, from coaching managers to deal with issues directly, or facilitating workshops with entire workgroups, please contact us if you'd like more information.
Paragon was selected by the BC Local Government Management Association to provide web trainings to the LGMA's members, one of the courses offered is "Dealing with Conflict":
|Some level of conflict
is inevitable in all workplaces, including local governments, and different
individuals tolerate (and embrace) conflict in very different ways. In this course
individuals will assess their own approaches to conflict, and will consider whether there are
strategies that can make them more successful. This course will be useful for those
that find workplace conflict very stressful, as well as those that enjoy "spirited" debates,
and will provide tools for those impacted by both direct and indirect (gossip) conflict.
