Mediation Approach & Philosophy
Conflict is all around us and it is part of everyday life; we can’t escape it. Can you recall ever watching a TV show or movie – including cartoons – where there were no disagreements, no conflicts, or no differences of opinion between the actors? Have you ever read a newspaper article or watched a news broadcast where conflict wasn’t in some way part of the background? In spite of the fact that all of us are familiar with conflict, having the means to effectively and objectively resolve conflict in a respectful manner is oftentimes a different matter. And that is where people in conflict benefit by the services of a qualified neutral mediator. When people come to me seeking mediation, my goal is to guide them in creating a mutually agreed upon list of Points of Agreement which will serve to guide their interactions in the future. We will explore how each party views the conflict from their unique perspective. Oftentimes, those views are very different from those of the other – not wrong, just different. Once the issues and how they are viewed are shared and acknowledged, I work to facilitate their conversation around those issues that each party sees as contributing to the conflict, in essence helping each person to see the situation between them from the other person’s perspective to clear up misunderstandings, challenge assumptions, and arrive at workable solutions. Since the Points of Agreement are created by the parties to the conflict, they learn to hold themselves accountable to the agreement and are able to avoid future conflicts. My background in working with companies and organizations across a wide array of industries has proved highly beneficial in assisting people resolve their conflict through mediation. If you are experiencing conflict that is stealing your ability to enjoy life and work, or you are a supervisor or manager of employees in conflict and wish to regain a sense of teamwork, cooperation and productivity in the workplace, it’s time to give me a call. Thank you and best wishes for a less stressful life! John E. Trombley, MMgt Mediator and OD Consultant (701) 306-6247 (Cell phone - please leave message)
