Description of Practice

Resologics provides mediation services to teams and organizations in the middle of unproductive conflict. We facilitate interpersonal and business conversations and help parties find effective ways to communicate, determine the real issues to be resolved, separate emotions from finance, make informed decisions, and implement resolutions.

Our mediation practice backgrounds include: complex multi-party interpersonal disputes and team dynamics issues; equity split dilemmas; financially sophisticated cases; co-founder problems; founder-investor relations; graceful employee, founder, and executive level exits; mergers & acquisitions; family business matters; compensation & benefits; union related; financial and services/administrative issues; organizational, strategic, and mission related; values and ethics related.

Our Approach:

If you or you team are in the midst of a conflict you are probably full of confusion, frustration and concern. You might be worried about losing money, clients, your job, your reputation, production capacity, and perhaps your own identity. We keep the mediation process simple and very focused on addressing your concerns. We do this by thoroughly examining the facts and issues, then we help you weigh all of your potential options in terms of both the emotional and financial impacts on you and your organization both now and in the future. We understand your worries and concerns and address them head on. In mediation, we provide you with the guidance and the tools to be in charge of your and your organizations' future.

Professional Background

It took Mark 30 years and three successful businesses to clarify his passion for conflict resolution. He'd been on teams with companies including Lockheed Martin, 3M, GE Healthcare, Burton Snowboards, PALL Corporation and Medtronic, producing everything from flexible-circuits and medical devices to high-volume packaging and sporting goods products, before he realized that fostering productive relationships was his favorite type of project. It was then that he traded his spreadsheets and drawings for his current toolkit: proactive conflict prevention support, capacity building, team coaching and dispute management.

Experience

Mark's been a business and workplace mediator with Riverstone Resolutions and Resologics since 2008 mediating and facilitating projects ranging from complex entrenched personal business disputes to multi-day retreats and team building events. He was the Courts Mediation Program Manager for SEEDS Community Resolution Center (Alameda County California) and managed a team of 35 paid and pro-bono mediators. He also co-led a Mediators Beyond Borders International peace building assessment in Rwanda.

Approach

Mark believes strongly that parties to a dispute are best at making their own decisions about final agreements and outcomes. He also believes that a strong process led by an outsider is critical, and at times, necessary for success. Additionally, the business disputes we see at the surface level often have a cause at the foundation or systems level and unless that system is dealt with, the conflict will persist. Long-term, sustainable agreements that fit the organization and the team are always the end-game.
