A serial killer’s daughter: restoring the families of the offender

A serial killer’s daughter: restoring the families of the offender | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
I've created a whole network of people like me - daughters, sons, siblings, parents and grandparents of serial killers. So far, I have had direct contact with more than 300 people like this - we are an underground community.
Recently I was contacted by the mother of two young girls, whose father was a serial killer who had been all over the papers in Europe. One of these girls was so depressed she was thinking of suicide. I asked my network to write letters to the girls, to let them know it gets better in time.
And it does. All these people have their own story, and each of them is on his or her own journey of recovery. But there are some emotions and processes we all go through. We all have a period of denial, we all ride that pendulum of shock and grief. Then comes the anger.

Nils Christie's Legacy | Criminology in Europe

Nils Christie's Legacy | Criminology in Europe | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
In the first place is the invention of Conflict Resolution Boards. Through this mechanism, conflicts which contain elements of "crime" (Nils did not like that word) are brought back to those who own them; that is, they are pulled out of the hands of lawyers and criminal justice agencies. In Conflict Resolution Boards, the conflicts are (ideally) transformed into discussions between human beings, where solutions are found. Conflict Resolution Boards represent a long history. Nils Christie is by far the most important inventor in question.

Secondly, he invented the "importation model" in criminal policy. The "importation model" is even more representative of Nils Christie' ability to think of extraordinary ways of doing things. In earlier times, specialists like medical doctors, teachers, social workers and others were employed directly by the prison system or the prison governor. Christie's idea – his invention – was to employ these individuals quite differently. He proposed to employ them outside the prison system, and import them from the outside and into the prison system.  The aim was to avoid at least some of the pressure of loyalties brought to bear on medical personnel, teachers and others from those within the prison system.

I would add "Learn to Read the Room" and recognize the audience needs and challenges before speaking...look for the guy who will give you the most trouble and win him over first.  Otherwise nice read and if you master these other items, you'll have more control in your meetings, especially when the stakes are high.

Rob Duke's insight:

Overwork, failure to recognize contributions/reward good work, lack of care about employees, failure to honor commitments, promoting the wrong people, don't encourage passions to be pursued, failure to dv their employees' skills and failure to engage creativity.

How to Create a Happy Work Culture | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

Your company may have a fantastic product or service, but your business may still falter if there is a negative work environment. Most importantly, you personally must be happy and positive, and present yourself as such, if you want a positive culture in your company. As a leader, prepare yourself daily with positive “vibes” like good self-talk and listen to something motivating on the way to work. You can even think of whose day you will personally be cheering up at work.

The new systems generally:

Focus on the employee in his or her own role.  They no longer try to rank employees against one another or compare performance to other employees.
Provide feedback more often.  Rather than a single review once a year, the new systems tend to provide feedback more often, at the end of each major project or every quarter, for example.  Deloitte has also implemented weekly check-ins with team leaders to help fuel performance.
Require less time to complete. Deloitte is using only four questions, two of which require yes or no answers.

The Emotions That Make Us More Creative

The Emotions That Make Us More Creative | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
Taken together, the latest research on the role of emotions in creativity suggests that instead of focusing exclusively on bringing out positive emotions among employees — or attempting to dispel negative emotions — managers may want to consider additional factors, such as whether the environment brings out emotional ambivalence (Is the environment unusual? Will it tap into a wide range of seemingly contradictory emotions?) and motivational intensity (Will it broaden or narrow someone’s focus?) when trying to stimulate creativity. It’s time to move beyond such simplistic black-and-white notions of the role of emotions in innovation, and instead embrace the inherent messiness of the creative process.

Is rudeness in the workplace contagious?

Is rudeness in the workplace contagious? | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

We experience rudeness and incivility all the time. From simple insults and offhand remarks to purposely excluding others from groups, these behaviors are largely tolerated in our daily lives and in the workplace. The question is, what effect do these behaviors have on us? It’s pretty clear that high-intensity negative behaviors like abuse, aggression and violence are harmful. But what’s the harm in just being rude and uncivil? A growing body of research offers compelling evidence that experiencing rudeness, and even simply witnessing rudeness, can have surprisingly harmful effects on performance, creativity and even helpfulness. However, it might not even end there. What if rudeness was actually contagious? This would mean that rudeness may not only hurt those who experience or witness it, but also have secondary effects. People who’ve experienced rude behavior from others are now “infected” with rudeness themselves, and will be rude to the people they interact with next.
