Session Two – Resolving Conflict in Your Life

“You don’t have to attend every conflict you’re invited to.” Cape Mediation

The 2018 Leadership Academy group participated in a 2-hour Cape Mediation workshop, ‘Build Bridges – Not Walls’ tailored to our industry and led by Executive Director Carol Connelly and Board Member Diane Panisire.

For the third year in a row, Cape Mediation promoted the awareness of how to use mediation through training and collaborative problem solving by utilizing role playing and Q&A reference cards that participants got to keep.


This all took place in a most unique setting on the Upper Cape – the main theatre of the Cotuit Center for the Arts.

Through this program, CCIAOR also tries to familiarize the group to local venues and introduce them to leaders and businesses in the community who are making a difference in our region.

The Cotuit Center for the Arts’ dynamic Executive Director David Kuehn, addressed the ‘audience’ from the stage where he represented the arts and the Center by emphasizing its mission – educate, entertain, illuminate and inspire!

If you are seeking to improve your conflict resolution skills, you can take an intensive 32 hour mediation skills training class offered by Cape Mediation with some of the best mediators in the State.
