Description of Practice
My practice is based on the best practices in dispute resolution with a foundation rooted in a master’s degree in dispute resolution, extensive training in specific techniques, and experience on what works.
--Does your organization need to discuss an emotional topic or figure out a policy on a controversial matter? I can design a dialog such as Reflective Structured Dialog to deepen understanding on the nuances of the issue for your community.
