One of the largest reducible costs in any organisation is the cost of conflict. Yet, well managed, conflict is an opportunity for ‘change and growth’. We offer a range of problem-solving and conflict management services. 

Our methodology to managing differences is multi-dimensional, is based on research and knowledge developed at some of the world’s leading research centres, and through extensive practical experience. Our approach recognises that  conflict can have many sources, e.g., structural, cultural, personal, situational, climatic, or design. It can be influenced by surrounds, and is often characterised by high emotions. If you need a conflict analysed, need support to find a resolution, or need advice and guidance on how to change the current dynamics, we can provide advice that is cutting edge.
