Description of Practice
We dig deep to understand the underlying causes of conflict, then take you through an affordable, collaborative, two-step process to:
- Resolve the conflict in the short term
- Make you and your team better equipped to handle conflict in the long term.
Jeanette has several years’ experience helping businesses, boards, and management teams work together effectively and make good decisions. She has seen first-hand the harm that is caused by conflict and incivility in the workplace, and she is passionate about helping to create workplaces without the distraction of dysfunctional personal conflict. Her goal, when working with teams and boards, is that members work together effectively enough to have constructive disagreements.
Jeanette’s clients most appreciate her calm demeanor in the face of conflict and the way she is able to help them navigate through complex issues and make sound

She also holds Advanced Certificates in Alternative Dispute Resolution and in Family Mediation.
