Mediation & Conflict Consulting
Mediation is a flexible dispute resolution process where individuals work directly with each other to resolve their dispute. As the mediator, Lacey helps both sides define the issues clearly, understand each other's position and move closer to resolution. Individuals seeking mediation understand that the mediator does not represent either person in the room and that mediation is a voluntary process that requires agreement from both people to participate. Because the mediation process is based on the participants' needs and interests, the outcome is typically more satisfying for those involved.
Conflict consulting is used to support peoples’ ability to engage in, manage, or productively resolve conflict. You will work one-on-one with Lacey and discuss the conflict you are having with another person. The process enables you to talk about the conflict, consider options for managing the conflict, and design an approach to discuss the conflict with the other person and/or feel more prepared and confident to engage in future disagreements. Depending on need, conflict consults can be a one-time meeting or take place over a series of appointments.
Mediation and conflict coaching can be useful in a variety of circumstances, including conflicts in the workplace, divorce and post-decree situations, community disputes, family disagreements, or business conflicts.
Workshops & Retreats
Experiential, values-based workshops and retreats focus on addressing racial and cultural conflict in families and workspaces. Conflict is inevitable, but what happens when race and culture are a part of that conflict? How does one address bias, internalized racism, privilege, and power when, not if, it surfaces in family and workplace situations? Lacey offers experiential discussions that engage participants in conversations about the dynamics of being in personal and/or professional relationships with individuals of marginalized identities and ways to work through conflict with the attention and care these conversations deserve. Utilizing powerful conflict resolution skills, participants will practice active listening, empathy and understanding, honoring our differences, and using interests, needs, and values as driving forces for resolution. Lacey uses hands-on activities to bring all the pieces together and leave participants with tools and strategies to transform group conflict dynamics.
