The program aims to develop knowledge and skills that will enable trainees to better understand the relation dynamics and behaviors within the workplace and handle them effectively. Project effectiveness is reliant not only to reversing the causes that have drawn to the conflict, but also to the reconstruction of relationships of co-workers. This can be achieved taking into consideration the hierarchy within a mutual benefit context, mainly as a result of a dynamic understanding of the opportunities, constraints and roles of each individual and not enforced.

2) Center for Dialogue

The Center for Dialogue of the European Institute of Management and Governance aims to promote the structured dialogue (as methodology and practice), in order to resolve collective disputes and to lead to policy creation. 
The Dialogue Center uses, among other techniques, the Structured Democratic Dialogue (SDD approach) in collaboration with the Institute for 21st Century Agoras (www.globalagoras.org). The Structured Democratic Dialogue Process – SDDP is a deeply reasoned, scientific methodology for large-scale, collaborative design, which promotes conflict resolution between communities, interest groups, countries, cultures and religions by creating convergences and producing policies. These policies are created at international, EU, national and local level through the cooperative resolution of issues. The SDD approach formulates mutual benefit solutions (win-win solutions). Moreover, SDD utilizes techniques of "collective wisdom" (dimosophia) in order to facilitate the stakeholders to achieve consensus and overcome any resistance encountered in the process of convergence concepts.

This Science of Dialogic Design has 3  Axioms, 6  Consensus Building Methods,  7  Language Patterns,  4  Stages of Interactive Inquiry and   6  Laws of Dialogue

The methodology of Structured Democratic Dialogue, which counts more than four decades of practicing around the world, has been selected by leading international and public organizations to resolve complex problems (in the last ten years mostly) with tangible results where other methods have failed. This methodology is considered the most appropriate for solving complex problems, whose solution in any other case would seem literally impossible. Furthermore, it achieves fair and equitable composition of different views in order to create consensus among the participants.


3) Official Participation in the Campaign of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA)

The European Institute of Management and Governance of the EPLO has been officially accepted as a partner in the campaign of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).This Agency is committed to making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work.
