How to Manage Conflict Positively and Effectively in Ministry Teams

How to Manage Conflict Positively and Effectively in Ministry Teams

Chad interviews Ron Kraybill on managing conflict positively and effectively in ministry teams. We learn of a useful conflict styles inventory which outlines 5 approaches to engaging with conflict: Directing, Cooperating, Avoiding, Harmonizing, and Compromising.

Ron Kraybill has over 30 years of experience around the world working for church groups, NGO’s and the United Nations in conflict resolution and peace-making. He also works closely with Liberty University training their ministerial students in how to effectively manage conflict in ministry teams.
