Cost of NOT doing Mediation

People in conflict are about 30 - 40 percent less effective and efficient than those who are not in conflict.  People close to people in conflict are about 20 - 30 percent less effective and efficient than those who are not around people in conflict.  In dollars and productivity, what does that cost you?... your enterprise?  In happiness, in creativity, in social interactions; what are the costs?  We think the cost is immense and you will too once you really consider it.  So, whether it is your employee, a coworker, a friend, a customer, a client, an associate, or you that is in conflict, if you've been wondering if talking to someone about mediation would be beneficial, call us at no cost.  Most likely, you're overdue for some positive news!
