Mediation offers an alternative, confidential and cost effective way of resolving disputes and conflict by helping parties to communicate, to see broader perspectives and to work together to find creative and workable solutions.
Executive coaching helps leaders to become more effective by offering a confidential space to identify and work through challenges, by developing deeper insights into themselves and others and by clarifying priorities and strategies for bringing about change.
“Mediation is a flexible process conducted confidentially in which a neutral person (the mediator) assists parties in working towards a negotiated agreement of a dispute or difference, with the parties in ultimate control of the decision to settle and the terms of the resolution.”
“Now that I am aware of my own patterns of behaviour, and where they come from, I can spot the warning signs and approach my relationship with [X] with a different mindset.”
“I wanted to thank you – I got that [big job] I went for. I don’t think I would have had the confidence to do that without your support.”
“It made a difference being coached by someone who has been there and done it, gets business and was willing to challenge my thinking. We had fun too! I now have a clear plan about where to go next.”
“It is no exaggeration to say that I found our [work together] life changing. It gave me the confidence and freedom to follow my instinct and find my own style as I took over the reins.”
