Conflict Management

Emotional De-escalation & Conflict Management for Youth Workers

Emotional De-escalation & Conflict Management for Youth Workers

Youth workers, teachers, camp staff, mentors, coaches all end up helping youth people resolve conflict and are often called upon to help a youth in crisis.

Project Imo will help your team take conflict resolution and de-escalation to the next level. This immersive workshop helps participants gain:

Understanding of individual escalation from cognitive, emotional, and physiological perspectives.
Powerful understanding of our own emotional response to conflict.
De-escalation strategies for emotionally escalated individuals.
Foundational communication strategies for conflict resolution.
Understanding of potential causes of interpersonal conflict within a group.
Conflict resolution strategies such as feedback, taking perspective, and building consensus.
Appreciation of the power of practicing conflict resolution in positive youth development.

Organizational Leadership

Organizational Leadership Adventures

Organizational Leadership Adventures

Who are YOU as an organization?

Real growth or change in an organization comes with strong culture. Strong culture comes from shared experience and co-created values developed in a way that transforms a group of individuals into a community with common purpose.

Project Imo facilitators support your team as they embed commitments to values-based practices into each experience. We will create a customized journey for your team. Whether it is a wilderness excursion, portable teambuilding course, flatwater explorations, ancestral survival skills, or wilderness “escape rooms”, we will work with your group to develop a singular experience.

Beyond abstract assessments

We don’t employ abstract surveys and assessment models that are nearly impossible to operationalize in the real workplace. Our facilitation experts will work with your team in real time to identify strengths and challenges during actual experiences.

 

Building internal capacities

Project Imo works with you to identify specific goals in advance of your experience and tailors our multimodal experiential learning model to your needs. This poises your team to grow and retain capacities for sustained excellence.

Creating strategic visionaries

Big visions require a team that can see the horizon, but this isn’t just about the big picture. Organizational visions require clear and common purpose, identifiable goals, and strategies to attain these goals. We will facilitate an engaging, adventurous training for your team that circles back perfectly into your workspace.
