These conversations are supported by trained and compassionate mediators and facilitators. Our goal is to provide a process which supports a respectful, focused and open dialogue to which leads to productive outcomes.

Conflict is inevitable and normal part of our interpersonal interactions. How we deal with and work through these events can be either positive and fruitful or negative and unproductive. We all have many effective communication skills and strategies we bring to our conversations, and there are other skills and strategies we may not be aware of. Integrative Mediation Services provides you with these new skills, strategies and insights, which will take you to the next level in your productive conversations. These insights and skills will enhance not only your communication skill level but will also increase your confidence when working through conflict situations. Often it is not the message, which is the issue, but how the message is delivered.
