Elisabeth Fisher

Welcome! I help leaders and their team members take the stress out of workplace conflict, get along better, and get more work done.

You are a thoughtful manager, and you care about the wellbeing of your people. You are tired of dealing with ongoing tension and conflict, perhaps even bullying, in your team. You are concerned about morale, productivity, and losing valuable employees.

You want to enjoy an atmosphere of mutual respect where everybody communicates and works well together, return your focus to your actual job rather than managing people’s squabbles, and work with happy, productive, and loyal employees.

I will help your team members understand what is not working and why, manage their response to stressful situations, stop bullying and other counterproductive behaviors, and work together even when they disagree or don’t like each other.

I will help you create a more collaborative work environment, make decisions that your team will support and implement, and hold your team members accountable in a way that is supportive and effective.

Rather than merely providing an external and temporary solution to a specific conflict, I coach each individual to build internal and lasting competence in teamwork and communication.
