People Skills for Successful Common Grazings Committees


People skills for successful common grazings committees

Calling all crofters, clerks and committee members!

We are holding an online meeting to help you increase the effectiveness and harmony of your common grazings committee.

With many users of a common, with different needs, disagreements can arise.  This workshop will  look at disputes and disagreements and how they escalate, and will demonstrate how skills and techniques used in mediation can help to effectively manage and resolve disputes.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to  –

  • Understand some of the causes of disputes and how they escalate
  • Use a number of tools used in mediation to resolve disputes and disagreements
  • Understand the benefits of mediation and how to access it

Previous participants have said that they have found these meetings really helpful for difficult situations; “Very informative and helpful presentation. The tools and techniques will be particularly useful as will understanding the needs of both parties.”

We hope to see you the meeting and find it as helpful as practical as previous crofting attendees.
