OverviewThe Carter School Political Leadership Academy's "Conflict Resolution for Political Leadership" course is a 3 week, 8-session course designed to equip American political leaders and those who aspire to such positions with meaningful conflict analysis and resolution ideas, skills, models, and experience to pursue more effective and peaceful political leadership, processes, and governance.
While we are planning several courses for the Political Leadership Academy, our 3-day inaugural course is entitled “Conflict Resolution for the Political Leader.” It will be a web-based, non-credit certificate course and feature guest lecturers from the Carter School, esteemed political professionals and practitioners, and Academy leadership delivering interactive curriculum based on the nexus of political leadership skills, common conflict areas experienced by political leaders, and conflict resolution ideas, models, and practice. It will also include break-out group sessions focusing on collaborative learning and experience-sharing which will engage applicable skills and reflective practice.
This course will reflect the Academy’s delivery of industry-leading instruction on conflict resolution for the political leader. It is based on a robust curriculum written to illuminate and address the roots of conflict and its resolution and opportunities within the political arena and equip the political leader to become more resourceful, efficient, and productive.
