FAMILY BUSINESSES

Conflicts are frequent in the small business environment, especially when the business is family-owned.
Employees who are not family members feel like outsiders, or that their input is not valued. Disagreements among the family members can adversely affect the office environment making others uncomfortable. Mediation is an excellent method of enabling participants to verbally express their concerns and frustrations and come together with mutually acceptable solutions.

                                                                                              

MERGERS and ACQUISITIONS

When non-profit organizations or businesses merge or are acquired, a typical result is anxiety about who stays and which job descriptions will change. Issues about consolidating equipment, policies, procedures, sales territories and other administrative functions arise. Mediation is a process that can help participants consider options and negotiate outcomes that are acceptable to all parties.


PARTNERSHIPS and/or DISSOLUTIONS

With the number of new startups rising each month, friends or family members who now become business partners begin their new relationship with excitement about their dreams of owning their own business. However, conflicts arise when there are differences about operations, marketing and business development, even management styles.  Stress begins to take over when personality conflicts get in the way and communication breaks down. Resentment builds when the workload is unbalanced or financial contributions are inequitable. Mediation, especially when used early in the relationship, is an excellent way to minimize problems that can lead to legal battles down the road. Mediation can also be used to settle partnership breakups out-of-court.

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS

With so many non-profit organizations competing for funding and struggling to raise funds to support their cause, pressure is enormous on board members and their executive management staff. Issues about agency performance and satisfying the requirements of grant funding sources is a rapidly growing problem facing directors of non-profit agencies today. Mediation fosters and environment whereby conflicts can be turned into opportunities and differences can be transformed into common denominators that bring leaders together.
