Some conflicts end well, while others end in a scramble to put ‘Humpty Dumpty’ back together again. Organizations can improve their conflict competence by:

  ⇒   Diagnosing organizational problems accurately

  ⇒   Improving listening, communication, and negotiation skills

  ⇒   Building vibrant information and feedback networks

  ⇒   Telling a compelling story about where the organization is headed

  ⇒   Cultivating a culture of creativity

How I can help

I have mediated hundreds of civil, family, business, and community disputes. I have also worked with a variety of organizations and community groups during strategic planning exercises to develop a vivid sense of what they want to achieve, and practical strategies for making sure they get there. Every mediation or other facilitated discussion is unique, but when it works:

  • Everyone’s perspectives and positions are stated and explained,
  • Participants figure out what is fueling the conflict,
  • Barriers to agreement are addressed effectively, and
  • People stick with the conversation long enough to find creative solutions.
