2 New Methods for Managing High Conflict in the Workplace
You know who they are! Today's workplace includes some customers, employees & managers whose behaviour is "high-conflict" – including yelling, lying, blaming, spreading rumours & generally sapping the organization's time, energy & money.
This public lecture provided an overview of methods for managing high-conflict people with two approaches: "The CARS Method" for managing high-conflict situations by anyone, and "New Ways for Work" – a new coaching method that uses a workbook for 3-12 sessions with employees and managers who need to improve their workplace behaviour or want to advance in their careers.
This was a preview of the 2-day Workshop: It's All Your Fault at Work! that Mr. Eddy presented on 10 - 11 September at Monash University Law Chambers.

Symposium: Access to Justice - taking the next steps
The Productivity Commission's Access to Justice Inquiry report was released on 3 December 2014. The report looks at the accessibility of the justice system, the use of alternative forms of dispute resolution, the regulation of the legal profession and the structure and operations of ombudsmen, tribunals and courts. It also discusses private funding of litigation; and the provision of legal aid, both broadly, and specifically to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
In the light of this ground breaking report, the Australian Centre for Justice Innovation at Monash University and the Australasian Institute for Judicial Administration hosted a one-day Symposium that brought together senior judicial officers, researchers and policy-makers from around Australia to explore and discuss the opportunities and challenges arising from the Access to Justice Arrangements Inquiry report.
The Symposium considered how the issues of costs, timeliness, obligations and processes impact upon accessing the justice system as well as examining issues relating to Legal Aid and Legal Centres. The Symposium featured keynote speakers and panel discussions from senior judicial officers, administrators and researchers.
