Alternative Dispute Resolution and conflict coaching

Conflict is part of everyday life - at home, in relationships, in families, in the workplace and in the community. It often leads to undesired consequences, including loss of relationships or workplaces, break up of teams or families and significant financial loss. Conflict also often has severe impact on personal wellbeing with flow on effects on surrounding communities. 

Mediation focuses on supporting all parties equally to navigate conflict skillfully, have difficult conversations in a facilitated environment, explore options they previously couldn't see and thus make a well informed decision. Mediation is a structured process and agreements reached in mediation can be binding to both parties. 

Conflict coaching can involve working with one OR all parties and support them dealing with conflict situations in a more empowered way outside of a formal mediation process. Even if the other party does not agree to mediation, conflict coaching can help break through conflict situations through the flow-on effects of enhanced communication skills, improved self-management and by exploring options with the coach as a proxy for the other party. Many conflicts can be unhinged simply by someone 'going first'.
