Time Management

Most people rarely think about what they spend time on, yet it can be our most important resource. In the first part of this workshop we will get to know methods to select tasks and use time more efficiently in everyday life, which will make it at the same time more valuable and seemingly more abundant. In the second part we will discuss planning ahead in projects, where time management is not an option but a necessity.

By: Marco Sulzgruber

Conflict solving

"Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress" Mahatma Ghandi.

In Conflict Solving, we shall learn - together - that conflict is not always a bad thing, when handled well. Disagreements happen, arguments happen - the important thing is that they get solved and that they fulfil their point, deciding the best course of action.

We will look over the methods for handling conflicting sides: classifying arguments, de-escalating personal aspects and arbitration. We shall analyse what brings conflict forward and its different types and which to nurture and which to reduce. During the workshop, your opinions and experiences will be wanted as they play a big role on what makes us behave in different ways, so prepare accordingly!

By: Elisenda Garzo Castro & Tin Marković
