FACE TO FACE TRAINING

Traditional mode of delivery, where learners and the facilitator will be on the same venue.

Workshop Overview:

Participants will have the opportunity to learn best ways of resolving disputes with or without the assistance of a third party, with less no formalities. Disputes are either resolved through court litigation or Alternative Dispute Resolution, commonly abbreviated as ADR, which does not involve courts. It is pertinent to note that to be an active participant is an ADR, does not require one to have a background in law.

Before the establishment of court systems in the world all disputes were resolved through ADR, but with the establishment of court systems ADR was marginalized. However the backlog of cases and other reasons have cause delayed justice in the courts of law, hence resort to ADR has proved inevitable that’s is why most justice delivery systems in the world including Tanzania encourage parties to use ADR and in fact ADR has been integrated into the justice delivery systems. In Tanzania for instance mediation has been made to be part of all civil proceedings in which before tendering of evidence start parties are compulsorily given the opportunity to mediate their dispute and once it fails, the hearing commences. In labour matters mediation is made compulsory.

ADR takes several forms including mediation, arbitration, and adjudication to mention but a few.  ADR is effective, efficient, time, without technicalities and above all the dispute is resolved and the relationship between parties is maintained.

At the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have learnt and understood the following:-

·    Have comprehensive and systematic knowledge of current thinking on disputes, its origins, sources, factors influencing its outcome, various conflict management style and dispute settlement options;

DESCRIPTION                    

The need for skilled report writing and presentation skills has increased in the last 20 years. Institutions increasingly seek training for their staff, however, effective writing skills are not only necessary for professionals and alike; these skills are critical in any technically-oriented professional job. Effective communications—or writing—is not writing about a specific technical topic, but about any technical topic. This means the clarity or clear message should reach the subordinate  using the presentation of the report.

Effective communication expected to express ourselves, both verbally and non-verbally, in ways that are appropriate to our cultures and situations. This means not only being able to express our opinions and desires, but also our needs and fears and to ask for advice and help. One of the challenges in writing skills is to do so in a way that a non-specialist could understand.

“No matter how good or important message is, if it is not delivered in interesting and effective way, chances are it wont be heard at all. Strong presentation skills can advance a career while pour speaking skills can ground a rising star”.

The “Effective Report Writing Skills”  and “Presentation Skills” aims at imparting participants with cutting edge report writing skills which will enable them to produce effective reports.
