I meet a lot of folks who own their legal or mediation practice, but don't have a website, a good bio, or even blog to share their thoughts and opinions. Potential clients usually check out folks online-to get a feel for professionalism and character-before hiring them. Websites are essential for a business.
I did my first two websites myself. I'm no tech genius, but with time, cursing, and many margaritas, I figured it out. The websites weren’t perfect, but they enabled clients to find me. I meet so many people who say they couldn’t possibly do it themselves. "No, no, I'm not tech savvy." or "Yeesh, I'm just not great at putting my vision into words."
You CAN get your practice on the map. Let's work on it together.
Join me on Saturday, August 3, 2019 for a full day workshop. You'll leave with:
a basic one-page website through SquareSpace;
text/copy for the website;
a good bio;
a plan to raise your online profile;
an outline for your first blog post;
pride in what you accomplished; and
relief that future clients can more easily find you.

Effective conflict resolution is more than "just" communication skills and the tools we use to generate movement. Yes, we are trained conflict resolution specialists. We are also people who work with people. We can't fully compartmentalize our experiences to offer bare neutrality. And each client has an entirely unique mix of demographics, familial history, identity and outlook.
What can we do to remain open and present when the mediation room is so packed?
Context in Conflict is a workshop for conflict resolvers and direct service providers, designed to start meaningful dialogue around how issues of race, class, gender, generational trauma and history weave themselves into our work. Through activities, small group work, role plays, and frank, respectful discussions, we'll:
Explore the assumptions we make about each other and ourselves;
Dive into the elephants that crowd the room, brought in by practitioners and participants alike; and
Utilize basic conflict coaching tools for self-reflection about our practice, and as a check-in tool before each session.
Date, Time, Location: Saturday, December 2, 2017, 9am-5pm Brooklyn Heights.
Registration fee is $225. Refunds up to 7 days in advance. Training limited to 20.

In addition to technical skills, practitioners in the field of negotiation, mediation and conflict resolution also need to manage their own emotions and stress related to their work. In this webinar you will learn more about how to perform self-assessments that will enable you to stay at the top of your game and serve your clients well.
Working in a stressful, isolating, and conflict-filled workplace can make your life miserable. Come hear three emerging leaders in workplace management talk about concrete ways to improve your work experience. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your frustrations and solid tools to help you move forward. Bring your problems, challenges, and questions!

"Dis-Solving Conflict from Within is a simple four step tool for turning our attention inward in conflict.
