Discover more about yourself through the Gilmore Fraleigh Style Profile.

Zoom Session on Style

The Friendly Style Profile is a profiling system helps you understand how you respond in both calm and storm situations. Created by Dr Susan Gilmore and Dr Patrick Fraleigh it is a trusted and respected way for people to explore more about themselves and their behaviour, and also to consider the impact they have on others. This is particularly helpful when life is challenging and stressful, making a huge difference to teams working together. Used extensively by churches, mediators, counsellors and other professionals, it improves our understanding of one another, and therefore helps us avoid unnecessary destructive conflict. 

May 28th 9.30 – 11.30
Cost £40

Booking essential as a questionnaire has to be completed prior to the workshop. Final date for booking is May 25th.

Let’s Talk Understanding Conflict

By Latest NewsNo Comments

Zoom workshops in June

Unresolved destructive conflict causes communication and relationship breakdown in families, teams and organisations of all kinds, making it difficult to live or work well together.

These workshops help participants to improve their understanding of conflict, how conflict may cause relationships to suffer, how good communication skills can help to prevent it from becoming destructive and how to deal creatively with conflict to restore and build relationships in families, organisations and communities.

These workshops will be of interest to individuals and to those who work in the voluntary, community and faith, public and private sectors, particularly team leaders.

Led by Joanna Williams, Director for Reconciliation

Reconcilers Together: Journey of Hope: a 6 month community reconciliation training for 20 emerging faith leaders

https://www.reconcilerstogether.co.uk/

The Blackley Centre is delighted to be a part of the second Journey of Hope Pilgrimage as, together with our partner organisations in Reconcilers Together we are working to equip and enable peacemakers from across the country. This time applicants are invited from all faith communities. This is a brilliant opportunity – do have a look at the website above for more details.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that our personal and collective response in times of crisis are crucial. As Covid-19, racial injustice, and the climate crisis continue to deeply impact our society, we are inviting you to join a community of committed peacemakers on a journey of hope: not the kind of hope that simply wishes for change optimistically, but the kind of hope that faces reality, stands in solidarity, and takes radically compassionate action.

This community will be an anchor point as we explore together how to creatively and courageously respond to conflict, cultivating a more relational and resilient society.

If you believe a new, more peaceful way of being is not only possible but paramount and want to be inspired by transformative leadership and innovative practices, this training is for you.
