Conflict Management

With a girl-led experience, there is an endless amount of choices and sometimes that may end in resolving conflicts. Differences in opinion—whether it be between volunteers, parent/troop leader, or girl/girl. When a conflict does come up, effectively navigating through it allows better communication, new ideas, and results that will allow you to have a successful leadership experience. Use our Conflict Resolution Packet to help you navigate conflict in your troop!

Now is a great chance to utilize the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) if you haven't already. You can plan out your year or just a single meeting. The VTK also has specific activities and scripts that help your girls earn badges!
