Improving Relationships

Relationships at Work

Relationships are tricky and conflict is inevitable.

Especially when you combine volunteers, employees, trustees who are volunteers often without much training and support, and yet are expected to understand and handle employees and volunteers…

Not to mention the confusion of overlapping relationships and communities, where the people involved may be part of the same worshipping group, and need to remember they’re ‘not at work’ while sorting out the tea and coffee rota, or during a theological debate.

Caveats & Context

MBS isn’t licensed for counselling or therapy. Instead, we offer the services listed on this website, plus specific employment and volunteer management training, including how to have better meetings over on our classroom site – to visit that click on the ‘log in’ circle on the home page.

If you are looking for more specialised help, or resources to use to improve your relationship we’ve listed some places you might visit and hopefully find whatever it is you’re looking for!
