Alternative Dispute Resolution Workshop

Toronto: September 27 - 30 or November 1 - 4
Ottawa: October 18 - 21

At this four-day workshop, you will discover the time-proven process to find win-win solutions to nearly any conflict thereby saving time, reducing costs, eliminating litigation and preserving valuable relationships. You will learn how to use Principled Negotiation, developed at Harvard, and learn how to mediate disputes. You will develop the practical skills and techniques you need to resolve disputes effectively and with confidence. This workshop will give you the tools to manage conflict constructively in the workplace and at home.

Due to the ever-increasing costs of conflict in the workplace, employers are increasingly turning to ADR as a solution. Employee conflict, labour disputes and discrimination claims in particular are increasingly common and employers need to take steps to stem the tide of conflict and lawsuits. ADR is an effective means to accomplish this goal. It is also the tool used by professional mediators to resolve conflicts between disputing parties.

ADR seeks to resolve conflict by cultivating cooperation and understanding. It seeks to find a solution that allows both parties to win. Above all, it seeks to protect the relationship while solving the problem.

We offer intensive and interactive learning experiences for professionals and executives. You will participate in dynamic exercises and case studies, with two-way and coached feedback. The concepts and approaches you will learn have proven successful in the real world, and can be applied immediately to your situation.

Create YOUR Coaching Practice

A program designed with YOU in mind.

Facilitated by Bruce McLeod and Diane Lloyd

This program is for you if:

  • You’re a coaching graduate new to the world of entrepreneurship.
  • You have already launched a practice but aren’t getting the results you want.
  • You have been coaching internally and are ready to “take the leap” to launch your business.
  • You want help mapping out your business strategy AND getting clients.
  • You feel a bit overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to start.
  • You want to connect with coaching business mentors and a supportive group of like-minded entrepreneurs.

Sound familiar? We can help.

We designed this program to help you thrive in your coaching business. The content has been road tested—it’s based on our experiences, failures, successes and experiments.

Why Invest?

Many coaching businesses fail in the first two years and there are many good reasons for this. One reason is that new coaches haven't invested the time and energy to learn about what it takes to build and sustain a business. This path you have chosen is about more than coaching; it is about becoming a business owner, a marketer, a salesperson, a strategist, and oh yes, a coach.

The Details

Start Date: Friday, Sept 30 to Friday, Nov 18, 2016
One-hour webinars using ADOBE Connect, on Fridays for 8 consecutive weeks. (Webinars are recorded if you are unable to attend)
8:30am PST, 11:30am EST.
