flourishing class about conflict

Flourishing class: What if we disagree?

This Flourishing class has not been planned yet.
Nieuwe Herengracht 18, Amsterdam


We often disagree with each other. How could we not? We all are different people. We disagree with our partner, with our boss or someone’s political beliefs. Could we find a connection and get better from a conflict?

In this flourishing class (workshop), we will share ideas and creative exercises on how to handle conflict. With the insights of philosopher and psychoanalyst Peter Rollins, we take a closer look at our usual reactions, discover surprising alternatives, and take it into practice. With Kim Scott’s ideas you will discover how to respond in a way that is connecting and candid at the same time. We play with perspectives, question our own points of view, and learn to better indicate our boundaries. So that conflict can help you further next time.

Do you find this an interesting theme? Leave your email address here, and we will send you a message when this flourishing class is scheduled again.

On this night:

✔️ We share questions and insights about conflict

✔️ We take a closer look at your role in a conflict

✔️ We discover how conflict can be fruitful

✔️ We learn how to say what we think and connect at the same time


What can you expect?

Flourishing classes are inspiring workshops in which we discuss themes that go beyond the everyday practice. For example: life, love, relationships, friendship, career, and identity. Perhaps you sometimes ask yourself the question; what do I really think is important? Or what drives me and does that suit me? With disruptive exercises and in an experimental setting, we encourage you to think and take action. Not only do we give you the theoretical knowledge, but we also put it into practice right away and get to work actively to leave you with new insights and concrete next steps.

For who?

The activities of De Kwekerij are intended for all students and young professionals who want to flourish between the ages of 18-35, of all backgrounds, gender identities and sexual preferences. Are the prices stopping you from coming? Send an email to info@kwekerijamsterdam.nl and we will discuss what is possible! We like to think along with you. Unfortunately, De Kwekerij is not (yet) wheelchair accessible. You can attend the flourishing class online or we can find another creative solution that works for you. If you have any doubts about the accessibility of one of our events for any other reason, please send an email to info@kwekerijamsterdam.nl. We hope to meet you soon!

By who?

The flourishing classes are given by growers. Growers are people between the ages of 18 and 35 who have completed our Kwekerij School. The Kwekerij School is a one-year course in which growers learn the methodology of De Kwekerij, practice with all parts of a flourishing class, receive 360-degree feedback and familiarize themselves with the themes of De Kwekerij.

The training of the Kwekerij School is given by Guy Wijnen. Guy was trained in training by Karin de Galan (School for Training) and has over 9 years of experience as a trainer for small and large organizations. By learning the methodology and taking it into practice, the growers are prepared for giving flowering classes.
