Workplace relationships are complex, and a breakdown in communication affects teamwork, performance and personal wellbeing.
Organisations call me when they experience interpersonal and team conflict, dysfunctional behaviour, or allegations of bullying, sexual harassment or discrimination. By using conflict resolution strategies, cultural reviews and professional development and coaching, I help create inclusive and harmonious workplace environments.
I can work with you and your staff to identify differences and find common ground. Through facilitation and consultation, I get to the heart of the issue quickly and provide practical support to guide people to empowered, practical solutions. My integrated services create the building blocks for happy, productive workplaces.
My goal is to help people better understand difference – to see the world through another person’s eyes. That understanding leads to a workplace culture of open communication, collaboration and respect for others.
That’s the kind of workplace we all want.
