Conflict is scary!
I will help you when you are facing a big, scary conflict monster. I will prepare you to overcome the obstacles you face by helping you clarify and focus on what is important to you. My purpose is to keep everyone involved in a conflict focused on the results, with an emphasis on protecting your interests. The secret to successfully navigating conflict is understanding your interests and avoiding battles that do not get you closer to where you want to be.
Conflict Assessment and Analysis
Whether you are a neutral outsider or a local caught up in the drama, your number one priority should be to assess the conflict. This is a fancy way of say you need to figure out who is involved in the conflict as well as what they are hoping to gain. If you hope to deescalate or resolve the conflict in any way you have to understand the players involved and decide how you will navigate the roadblocks to resolution.
Conflict Consulting and Coaching
From intelligence gathering to assessment and analysis and through the negotiations, offers, and counter-offers, I will provide shrewd judgment that will prepare you to take effective action. My mission is to help you clarify and focus on what is important to you and to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are making the best possible decisions.
