Mediation Intensive Training 26th, 27th and 28th of March 2020

What is Mediation?
Mediation is the methodology which is confidential, where people in conflict can approach a neutral person who will facilitate a conversation between them in an unbiased manner and clear the path to resolve and restore peace. Most importantly mediation saves relationships.

Conflicts by themselves are not disturbing, they gather negativity when they are not handled well. While a well navigated conflict actually leads to a productive environment. The more people learn the methodology the more peaceful and productive our spaces will become. 

Our vision at is to have mediators across workspaces, schools, communities and homes! Why not? Anyone can mediate, you only need to do it. Mediation is the need that helps people in resolving small conflicts to the big ones. Why not nip them in the bud? That’s why this our training is for everyone and not lawyers alone.

Mediation is a skill that most people already possess. Most of us find the need for skillful handling of conflicts at the workplace and home. It just needs fine-tuning, and that’s exactly what we do at the 3 Day Intensive Training. It helps people build a stronger relationship, generate self-confidence in expressing their voice and most importantly help people stay out of unnecessary litigation.
