Almost all of my professional life has been as a third-party neutral, whether as a consultant or mediator, helping my clients find common ground, mutual benefit, solutions to their problems.

Here are three ways I can help you.

1. Situation Assessment

Tune in to what’s going on. Most workplaces are complex. There are many factors at play; interpersonal, systems, processes, data, external factors… A situation assessment conducted by a skilled neutral can help you understand what’s going on and how to move forward in positive and constructive ways. My assessment involves a focused questionnaire, interviews with key participants and stakeholders, thorough situation and options analysis, and recommendations for next steps.

2. Team Development

Perform better as a team. In teams, the quality of interactions and relationships directly influence team results. Working with your team, I use a variety of assessment tools and techniques, both individual and group-related, to help your team members and team grow. We’ll work on team communications, open dialogue, emotional intelligence, process improvement, and conflict resolution.

3. Interpersonal Mediation

Resolve conflict, fairly. When conflict is out in the open, sometimes a third party neutral can help deescalate the conflict, and resolve differences. I’ve mediated 600+ business and community disputes. I use the interest-based, aka win-win, approach in mediation. Mediation is cost-effective, and can be an effective way to maintain relationships. Don’t avoid the difficult conversation.
