During the training, the instructor taught us how to talk to people and let them know we’re listening. She also taught us how to calm individuals down if they start raising their voice or if they are feeling a little too strongly about what they are saying. A helpful leadership skill that I have developed from Peer Mediation, is my ability to talk to people when they need someone to help them solve their conflicts with others. This helps with my personal life too because my friends know they can come to me if they need someone to help them work out their conflicts.
