Conflict Management & Workplace Skills Training

I am an experienced trainer and educator, and training individuals and teams in the tools and concepts that I use in my mediation practice is a key part of my work. By learning the skills of good communication, leadership, management, wellbeing and collaboration, many incidences of challenging conflicts, disputes and relationship breakdowns can be prevented. When teams and their communications are working well, positive outcomes include measurable reductions in staff sickness and turnover, and enhanced employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity.
