      Mediation in the workplace

      Mediation in the workplace   seminar hosted by Sarah Crayford Brown (10.45-11.30am) What to expect?     -A live demonstration of a workplace mediation using professional actors.   -It would start with an outburst between the characters around a typical workplace area of conflict.   -Sarah Crayford Brown would demonstrate how workplace mediation might be used to resolve the dispute.   -Q & A session   Why people may be interested to attend? The CBI estimates that workplace conflict costs UK business £33 billion per year, taking up 20% of leadership time and potentially losing up to 370 million working days. Many organisations still adopt a rigid and resource intensive formal approach when conflict arises, although this is seldom effective at resolving the dispute. There is increasing recognition that organisations want an alternative and more informal approach to workplace conflict, such as mediation, but there is a lack of understanding about how this might be used in practice. The session will provide the delegates with a unique opportunity to observe a ‘real’ mediation by using actors as the parties in conflict and mediated by an experienced and practicing workplace mediator. To whom might the session appeal? The session should appeal to anyone who has a responsibility for managing a business or an HR role. In particular:   -HR professionals/HR Business Partners/ HR Managers/HR Directors   -Small business owners with responsibility for managing staff   -Leaders and managers and also of general interest to other delegates About Sarah Crayford-Brown Sarah qualified as a barrister in 1988 and is an accredited mediator and a coach with over 20 years of experience of working within the public sector. Sarah was a senior manager for 17 years and was responsible for implementing substantial organisational change within the Crown Prosecution Service.
