Mediation involves a neutral third party (mediator) who intervenes with individuals experiencing conflict to help facilitate a constructive conversation and assist them with coming up with their own solutions to the problem. Types of mediations include: community, neighbor, business, family, custody, school, landlord/tenant, etc.
One-on-one coaching and skills training for dealing with conflict constructively for individuals who want to improve their communications skills and enhance their ability to manage conflict in the workplace, within an organization, in their community, with families or when the other party refuses to mediate.
We offer facilitation services to families, businesses, organizations, communities, and other groups based on individual need.
