Mediation/ Conflict Service

“Resolving conflict is rarely about who is right.  It is about acknowledgment and appreciation of differences.”


Unchecked conflict is time consuming and costly!

Chronic unresolved conflict is a decisive factor in at least 50% of all employee resignations, is a primary source of employee dissatisfaction, and accounts for up to 90% of the cause of employee terminations by employers.

Put your time and energy where it is needed most. Let us help with board and operational policy development or revisions.

  • Human Resource Policy
  • Job Description Development
  • Organization Policy
  • Board Governance Policy

You’ll find that hiring us to draft your policies saves money and allows you and your staff opportunity to do what you do best in serving your clients.

    We can help your board do its job well

    We excel at providing Boards with the right tools and information to succeed.

    Our consultants have lengthy experience working with Boards and can assist with board education, policy development, performance evaluation of the Executive Director and planning.

    Karin Naslund has a Certificate in Conflict Management from the ADR Institute of Alberta, where she graduated with commendation in mediation.  The skill and talent she has for resolving conflict will help resolving disagreements between staff, volunteers, guardians, etc. in the most cost effective way.  Furthermore, she shares her knowledge by educating staff at all levels to identify conflict and have the “tough conversation” early on using tools she provides.

    Conflict is one of the largest reducible costs within organizations.
    Why not train ALL staff to better deal with disagreements and avoid gossip, team breakdown, wasted time, and an unfavorable reputation.

    “Knowing that we are able to send our new leaders to this type of training and can trust that they are being taught sound leadership skills is reassuring to the management team of our department. Retention at the Team Leader level is very high. We are happy with our ongoing relationship with Karin and her team and would recommend her Great Supervision Series to any organization that is looking to foster and grow the supervisory skills of new leaders within their ranks.”
