Foundational course: 
Navigating Conflict at Work

2 weeks | 23rd May - 1st June

Tuesdays & Thursdays 17:30-19:00 CET | Zoom

Conflict is a natural part of any social system, but suppressed or poorly-handled conflict can be one of the most debilitating and financially costly challenges an organisation or a team can face. Fortunately, the opposite is also true. Well-navigated conflict can be remarkably generative, supporting individuals, teams, and organisations in profound leaps in development, creativity, and insight.

This course is for anyone interested in becoming more capable of navigating conflict in a work setting, regardless of their role. No previous experience with conflict resolution required.

What people say about us

Irem Tumer


"The training was the perfect way to equip our team with tools to overcome challenges of organizing in a decentralised and value-driven way. Rich and Nati guided the journey with commitment and positivity at every step and we supported us with their vast experience and knowledge. The atmosphere of safety and trust they created was inspiring and set the tone for our follow-up plans."

“Participating in The Hum's course brought home and demystified questions of what new forms of governance and organising for change can look and feel like. Their way of grounding theory into practice through simple and clear language, applied learning opportunities and sharing examples from the field encouraged me to try new things out in my own organisational context." 


"I have come away from the course understanding that deciding to have a flat structure was just the first step for us. There is a lot of work to be done to build the structures and processes that we need to thrive. The Hum has given us the tools and the inspiration to help us on this journey. I feel much more confident about trying new ways of organising."
