Why train in mediation?

Mediation provides a range of skills that can be used with incredible effect within existing leadership roles, human resources, or indeed any role that involves dealing with staff or the public. It can help with complaints handling, grievance procedures, workplace conflict situations and team buiilding.

Support your team

Improve relationships and dynamics within your team to strengthen your business. Conflict causes lost operational efficiency. Having trained conflict resolution practitioners in your teams will reduce conflict and increase profitability as well as improving morale.

Improve your business

Practical help for supporting customers, colleagues and external partners. Mediation skills can be used both formally and informally. Many businesses now build mediation into their policies and procedures to streamline processes in order to focus on profitability.

Develop yourself

Improve your personal and business relationships. Gain the skills to handle and resolve difficult conversations. We all encounter conflict at home, at work and at play. Learn how to deal with potentially inflammatory situations in a non-judgmental way.


Improve your management training

Better managers mean happier, more productive staff, satisfied customers and better partnerships. Mediation should be mandatory for all managers. Learn how to listen, to better understand and resolve conflict situations.



The course was of a very high standard and the delivery and mentoring was excellent.

The standard was excellent, the enthusiasm of Judith and Susie is infectious and I don't know how they fitted in all of the content.
