Our professionals can help
The complexity of group processes, the intricacy of group dynamics, and the hyper-stimulation of multiple voices and issues demand a facilitator who has well-honed process skills. A facilitated process is structured to accommodate discussion within a group of any size.
A meeting or discussion guided by our comprehensively trained and experienced facilitators will:
Provide an environment conducive to having difficult discussions
Help bring diverse perspectives toward a shared understanding of a situation
Develop constructive ways to interact
Focus on outcomes that serve the best interests of all concerned
Assist you to develop an action plan
The Mediation Center has a strong program of skilled staff and affiliates to meet the facilitation, consultation, and conflict management needs of businesses and organizations of all sizes, as well as federal, state, and local government entities.
Our facilitators are experienced, highly-trained neutral third parties who assist all participants in communicating clearly, clarifying issues and interests, exploring options, and reaching consensus. Facilitators control the process, not the content, and have no authority to render a judgment or influence any substantive decision making.
