Mediation is an assisted conversation between individuals or groups who are having difficulty communicating in the way they would like. Mediation is available in a variety of contexts including family, community, workplace, organization, school, and more.
Pre-mediation: When possible Leah prefers to meet with each party individually in private before bringing everyone together. During the pre-mediation session she is able to show you how the process works, answer questions and get information from you that will help in determining whether mediation is a viable option for your situation. Pre-mediation can be in person, by Skype or by phone.
In conflict coaching Leah works with an individual in a private session. One might seek such coaching when dealing with a conflict where the other party is unwilling or unable to participate in mediation. Through this process much personal peace can be gained even without the participation of the other. In addition Conflict Coaching includes processes that are helpful in resolving internal conflicts that are obstructing one's inner peace. Another use of coaching can be when you would like to do some "preventative medicine" by working on how to set up a healthy communication environment in a new project, partnership or relationship where you’d like to have open communication from the beginning. Conflict Coaching can be in person, by Skype or by phone.
"“I was very impressed by the way you handled the first meeting. You did a great job with understanding and compassion. You definitely helped me and your input will be well utilized by me."
How do I get started?
When you contact Leah with interest in her services she will arrange an engagement call with you. The engagement call is free and lasts 15-30 minutes. You will have the opportunity to explain your situation and ask any questions that you have. If you mutually agree to go forward, an appointment can be made.
In the case of financial hardship, please contact me to discuss possible options.
Leah can assist groups in exploring important questions such as: what is our purpose, what is working, what is not, how do we make decisions, what needs healing, what needs change, how do we go forward? Sometimes a group forms for a common purpose only to find that they lack individuals with the experience and willingness to take the role of facilitator. Leah can help your group explore how you would like to run your meetings and make your decisions and she can assist you in getting started by offering options, information, training and modeling so that you can ultimately facilitate yourselves. Or, in some cases a group which does not wish to establish their own facilitation skills can engage Leah’s services to act as facilitator for their group process and meetings as needed.
