Mediation is a process for individuals or groups, who are in any type of conflict, to work with a mediator to discuss the problems, identify key issues and explore practical ways to resolve or manage the conflict. No matter how complex or entrenched a matter is, we believe mediation is a powerful tool in assisting parties to resolve their differences and find a way to positively move forward. The process is a flexible one, with our mediators adapting to the needs of the parties and enabling solutions based outcomes.
You can call one of our mediators directly to discuss if mediation is appropriate.
Type of mediations we can assist with:
- Relationships in the workplace
- Conflict between colleagues
- Conflict between teams
- Conflict between managers and their direct reports
- High level executives and boards
- Personal Grievances
- Bullying and Harassment
- Collective Bargaining
- Conflict Coaching (one on one)
- Any other matter relating to conflict or disagreements
