Improving working relationships with understanding, discretion, and warmth
When emotions run high, there's a lot at stake and you disagree, it's hard to make the right choices.
As an accredited mediator, I often see people whose lives have been blighted by misunderstanding, businesses held back or relationships damaged. Usually, at the end of a successful mediation, someone says, "I wish we'd had this conversation earlier..."
As a business and personal coach, I've seen charities struggling because directors don't get on, family businesses failing due to personality clashes and grief caused by disagreements.
Having owned and worked in family businesses, I know the special strains (as well as the joys) these bring. It was this that led me to study why people behave the way they do and how to help them find their own solutions to stress and conflict.
You need quick and affordable results. You want to improve your relationships and have a service that fits your circumstances. You want someone you can trust, who knows what it's like to work in a small closely knit environment.
