I tell people about my work in
business mediation and facilitation, I am asked
the same question "Don't
you find it stressful to be in the middle of disagreements
and conflict?" Although it is demanding, it is very
rewarding to see people overcome the problem they are
facing by finding a solution that works for them.
am also asked if I am a lawyer. I am an experienced
mediator, facilitator and Certified Management Consultant
governed by a Code of Conduct. I am involved where the
parties would like to be able to talk to each other after
the matter is settled or need to continue working together;
it is not strictly a matter of law, and who is right or
wrong. The parties prefer to determine the outcome, rather
than having someone else decide for them.
question I am asked is: "How
do you do what you do?" The answer
is this.....it's who I am - it's just what I do. I am a
natural problem solver, who is known for giving sensible
advice. I am always looking at options and doing risk assessments. I have an ability to solve complex problems
with a practical, common sense approach. People tell me
that I'm sincere, objective, thorough and very fast. Read
more about how I do it.
As an executive recruiter for information technology
I gained an indepth understanding of people - their roles,
responsibilities, drivers and effectiveness. As I worked
in this setting, I was frequently asked for advice.
As a result, I developed Consequential
approach designed to help individuals, project teams
and management groups maximize their decision-making
effectiveness in times of dispute, conflict or change.
this approach, I have successfully conducted and managed
consulting assignments in the areas of business mediation,
dispute resolution, risk identification
and assessment, strategy reformulation, and executive assessment
and development. Clients that have worked with me tell
me that I take our discussions to a new plane where key
and critical issues can be discussed confidentially and
to establishing my firm, I worked for Coopers & Lybrand
in Toronto, Ontario, Canada (now PricewaterhouseCoopers)
and was a partner in a Toronto based boutique consulting
firm. The early part of my career was spent in Montreal
where I grew up.
If you are struggling with an important issue, you will benefit from my services. I can be reached at 416-410-3311 for a strictly confidential no obligation initial discussion.
