How can conflict be resolved ?

There is general recognition that mediation is helpful in formal conflicts, which may potentially end up in court. The different  types of traditional mediation are

  • Family mediation e.g. children issues in divorce and separation
  • Commercial mediation e.g. disputes over contracts between companies
  • Civil mediation e.g. neighbour disputes
  • Workplace mediation e.g.  disciplinary issues

Clearly, all of these can have impact on business performance to as greater or lesser extent; indeed, as accredited Commercial mediators, we offer such mediation as part of our service. However, there are also broader conflict issues in Business, which are different in some very important respects :

  • They may not be related to 'formal' issues; if unaddressed, conflicts within businesses can have harmful effects on the people and the business, but they would generally not end up in court.
  •  They encompass both explicit conflict and conflict 'below the surface'. 
  • There are often conflicts involving key individuals in the business e.g conflicts in the board room, between teams, or conflicts caused by an organisational 'culture'
  • There is a need to focus on 'preventative' as well as 'curative' action e.g. minimising the adverse effects of structural/process changes
