Road Construction in Traverse City: Watch for detours when visiting the Playhouse in May, 2024!

Conflict Resolution Update

Last fall, a core group of volunteers participated in a conflict resolution workshop conducted by Kathy Grinsteiner of Ever Growth Consulting. Participants included Board of Trustees, Artistic Committee, Tech Chairs, Directors, staff and other volunteers. The workshop was supported with funding from the Michigan Arts and Culture Council with the goal to help us all in our volunteer and professional interactions.  

When there is a conflict, we each bring our own emotions and preconceived notions to the conversation and often lose sight that the other person is doing the same. We invited Kathy to come back for an interview to refresh some of the learnings and also create the ability to share this content via video with other volunteers who were not at the original workshop.
