A Mediator Who Understands What’s At Stake

… and how to help you protect it.  Time and money are the obvious resources that conflict bleeds.  Disputes in the workplace can also significantly harm:

  • Productivity
  • Staying relevant, aka getting back to one’s job
    • Be it with the same or a different employer, or
    • The work of your business
  • Reputation (Business and Personal)
  • Business or Professional Value
  • Sale, Investment and/or Growth Viability
  • Human Resources
    • Morale
    • Retention
    • Quality of Performance
  • Relationships, inside and outside the place of employment

Your “success” in resolving your conflict will depend on choosing the right neutral.  Choose one who’s probably seen more than you, more than others, who gets what’s at stake, and who can help you avoid pitfalls you haven’t thought of yet.
