Mediation and Conflict Coaching
Conflict is endemic in human relationships. It is not, however, unmanageable or necessarily destructive. Conflict, if managed correctly, can result in resolution and can bring positive change and growth.
If you are involved in a conflict at work, in your community or with family members that have you consumed with anger, avoiding difficult conversations, feeling frustrated or unable to move forward, I can help. I bring 20 years of organizational and leadership experience, facilitation and communication expertise to the table – whether it’s in your boardroom or your kitchen. My goal is to listen to all points of view, explore areas of conflict , synthesize information and formulate win-win resolutions. With mediation and/or conflict coaching, you’ll feel more able to engage in conflict, communicate clearly, prevent disputes from escalating and apply these skills to establishing strong, long-lasting relationships.
MEDIATION is a process in which an impartial person facilitates a mutually acceptable agreement between parties. A good mediator can help resolve a specific dispute efficiently; a great mediator brings divergent points of view into closer proximity to develop mutual understanding and respect, mitigates damage to relationships and solidifies them based on common grounds and goals.
In CONFLICT COACHING, one of the parties works with the mediator/coach to more effectively communicate with the opposing party. Through this process, you will be empowered by your new ability to eliminate miscommunications and assumptions that lie at the root of most conflicts.
