Description of Practice

I specialize in participatory and empowering processes:

Conducting complex mediations between individuals and groups.

Coaching individuals.

Facilitating multi-stakeholder conflict engagement processes. 

Professional Background

I am a seasoned mediator. For more than three decades, I have mediated, facilitated, taught and trained thousands of people around the world. I support people to engage their complex relational conflicts as opportunities for constructive learning, cooperation and change.

I work with clients, usually separately and together, about their important goals and ways conflicts are in the way of achieving them. 

I also coach one side of a conflict to deal with it and the other side more mindfully and constructively, even if the other side isn’t so keen to tango.

Mediation Experience

30 years experience across over a dozen countries:

*Coaching individuals to deal with conflict more mindfully and constructively 
*Mediating between individuals and groups stuck in destructive conflict cycles
*Facilitating within and between groups seeking to work better together
*Running retreats for teams
*Mediation between leaders in business and public organizations

Mediation Training

Trained as mediator and facilitator

Trained in small group dynamics

Trained in organizational consulting

Trained in international conflict resolution

Mediation Approach & Philosophy

As a trusted third party, or conflict coach, I support people to be clear about their goals and values at stake in a conflict situation. Beginning with this positive frame, we then explore ways their conflict is blocking the fulfillment of these goals. We then explore ways to best engage the conflict such that stated goals are achievable.

Representative Cases Handled as a Mediator

Post separation mediation between divorced couples who have had ongoing conflicts in their post-marriage relationship (especially dealing with children). Mediating between founders and successors in family businesses. Coaching leaders - individually and in teams - to gain a better handle on specific conflict situations as a lens for learning and improving their conflict handling capacities afterwards. Mediating between battling leaders in organizations who were undermining each other and team morale and helping them convert this in to change and development for themselves and system. Facilitating within and between groups identity groups (e.g police and community; Israelis and Palestinians) seeking to work better together, instead of at cross purposes.

Complex Case Experience

Facilitated interventions, taught and trained in complex identity-based conflicts (i.e. racial, ethnic, national) in N. and S. America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia.
