About the Mediation Center

The Mediation Center provides a variety of professional services, including workplace seminars, group facilitation and conflict resolution. Workplace seminars focus on a variety of topics, such as proper conduct, communicating clearly with peers and how to build consensus among a team. Their trained mediators are equipped to facilitate group workshops, board retreats, planning sessions or forums. Their experience in bringing about harmonious resolutions allows them to keep groups on track, maintaining order and streamlining discussions to achieve goals.  Their conflict resolution sessions help workplace teams work efficiently and in cooperation. Conflicts may be based on disagreements over work procedures, different needs, personality clashes, or a range of situations that lead to confrontations. This program manages conflict by recognizing the impact it has, identifying common causes and using positive communication to prevent it.
