Join our FREE distance learning event on Conflict Management - How to professionally address conflict with confidence In this session, we will cover the best practices on how to professionally engage in conflict conversations. Yes, there is a science on how to best discuss difference of opinions, positions and views. Let's be honest, no one really enjoy these difficult conversations. Some don't sleep, some people avoids them at all cost and some actually call in sick! The problem as a leader in organization is that you are teaching other people how to treat you and your team by your actions. If someone is slipping behind schedule, or if someone yells at you or your staff, or even if someone keeps you out of the loop and you don't address it promptly, you are teaching them that it is ok to do so if you don’t address it! And they will keep doing it. Polls have found that these difficult situations actually don't go away, and that they usually compound and become more difficult to address.

Dans cette session nous présenterons les meilleures pratiques en résolution de conflit. En effet, il y a une science derrière ces méthodes afin d’éclaircir les positions, les opinions et les perceptions qui existent au travail. Malgré que la résolution des différences soit nécessaire, je peux franchement dire que, je n’ai toujours pas rencontré quelqu’un qui adore ces interactions! Certains ont de la difficulté à dormir, d’autres évitent ces conversations et j’en connais même qui se déclare malade pour éviter des discussions qui peuvent être agitées. Le dilemme est qu’en tant que leader dans une organisation, vous ne pouvez pas laisser aller une situation problématique tel que: quelqu’un qui a pris du retard dans le projet, quelqu’un qui crie à vos employés, ou quelqu’un qui a été « oublié » dans des mises à jour importantes; si vous ne faites rien, vous démontrez que tout est correct, que les actions sont acceptables. Si vous ne l’adressez pas promptement, ceci les motive donc à continuer!

Re: Union is a thought-provoking political drama inspired by the real-life story of American Quaker and academic, Norman Morrison who, in protest of Vietnam War set himself on fire below the Pentagon window of Robert McNamara. Morrison’s youngest child Emily was at his side. Building on this piece of American history, Devine fictionalizes a reunion between McNamara and Emily thirty-six years later. In the days following 9/11, Emily plans to carry on her father’s legacy by inviting McNamara to witness her act of domestic terror in protest to America’s military intervention in Iraq and its new Patriot Act. Interspersed with flashbacks of Morrison lecturing philosophy students on ethics and morality, the audience witnesses the present-day growth of Emily and McNamara as they move from their narrow, singular points of view to a more nuanced understanding of political activism and institutionalized power. Re: Union provides an intelligent, emotional debate on the consequences of our actions, or inactions, in a way that remains relevant and fresh for today.

“Yoga Satire. Brilliant, brash, and wickedly wise. You will pee your yoga pants from laughing so hard.” Through the Gaze of a Navel is a performance in the form of a yoga class that you can participate in or observe, led by self-proclaimed pop psychology expert, Emelia Symington Fedy. A woman who has consumed every new-age medicine she could get her hands on, from swimming with cosmic dolphins to crystal bowl vibrational healing to vaginal weightlifting classes, Emelia’s take is irreverent but the darkness she encounters is real. Emelia asks the big questions while guiding you through a physical journey suitable for people of all levels of experience. More than a regular yoga class or a mere kiss-and-tell of a lifelong obsession, Through the Gaze of a Navel takes the spiritual quest and sets it in a hilarious context.

"Set a boundary and they will break it." What Happened to the Seeker - Intimacy with a Thousand Things - chronicles a middle-class, North American women’s effort to recapture the sense of well-being that came from being a child of the Seekers - the hippie, free love generation that searched the world for spiritual fulfillment. A contemporary means of storytelling, this piece challenges the ways narratives can be told by presenting it through three mediums: an exhibit, a video, and a live performance. After interacting with personal objects that capture the highs and lows of the artist’s 50 year life, the audience takes a twenty-five minute video journey with her along the old hippie trail in India. The story ends with a twenty-five minute live performance wherein the artist connects the information of the exhibit and video while identifying our collective, turbulent past. Although the artist admits her search for meaning and greater understanding of her place in the world was a failure, she reassures us that that answer was enough to bring her peace.

In this brand-new work, Dances for a Small Stage presents a theatrical, high-energy performance featuring an eclectic lineup of Canada’s top dance artists and musicians from Vancouver, Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa, and Halifax. A lively showcase of daring artistry and imaginative collaborations, it takes inspiration from Weimar Cabaret, a glamorous style of cabaret made popular in late 1920’s Germany. Since its inception in 2002, Dances for a Small Stage has been wowing audiences by tearing down formalities and creating intimate, raw scenarios in which to experience dance. Based in Vancouver, they’ve presented some of Canada’s greatest dance talents – all on a ridiculously small stage. ‘It is a win-win-win formula that packs a downtown lounge on a weeknight […], and gives dance artists occasion to try something new and possibly ridiculous.’ -

“McCulloch was solid. … He proved that he still “has it.” ….There were even a few personal, serious moments that almost caught you off guard…McCulloch was in probably the finest form of his career.” Comedian, writer, director and legendary Kid in the Hall Bruce McCulloch combines stand-up, live music and assorted autobiographical insights in Young Drunk Punk. Bruce’s new solo show chronicles his journey from wild early days as a ‘young punk’ in 80’s Alberta, to his flannel plaid days and futon nights in 90’s Toronto, to becoming a ‘pajama-clad dad’ living in the Hollywood Hills. From scowling teenager to father of two, this evening of comedy, peppered with moments of surprising poignancy, proves that although this infamous Kid may be all grown up, his singular brand of humour and signature wit remain firmly intact. Magnetic North thanks Downtown Rideau for being the official sponsor of Young Drunk Punk.
