Mediation & Leadership development ~ making things happen ! 

We credit much of our success to those mentors who helped us fulfill our potential. They had the following attributes:

the Wisdom to know the right thing to do  

Is the Integrity to do

the Character to stand up to those who don't do it

the Courage to stop those who won't do it

the Perseverance to keep doing it 

What makes a great business or community leader?

Is it someone who leads by the dominance of their personality and because they single-mindedly believe their ideas are the only ones that will work?

Is it someone who delegates to individuals those tasks they think that those individuals can manage whilst retaining other decisions that only they will make?

is it someone who leads through mediation?


The leader must aim high, see big, judge widely, thus setting himself apart form the ordinary people who debate in narrow confines. ----- Charles de Gaulle

Mediation is about leading through reaching mutual agreement that the final decision is the right one for everyone around the table. It is not about leading by compromise, appeasement or dumbing down, far from it! Mediation leadership is about valuing everyone's ideas and reaching consensus after discussion that the final conclusion or action plan is valid and owned by all.

Mediation leadership is about dialogue and communication, qualities that can be lacking in some organizations but underpin others. Mediation is about identifying areas of current or potential conflict in a management team, or the wider business environment and determining strategies to manage the issues effectively. Mediation leadership requires personal skills such as flexible thinking, an ability to communicate, empathy, patience, optimism and an ability to listen, but ultimately make a firm decision based on the ideas that they have heard as well as their own beliefs. It also requires leaders to be able to articulate why certain ideas were not taken forward at the close. A leader who says that they haven't got time to listen to those around them is a leader who may end up without any followers

Leaders are not born, they are made, and, they are made just like anything else – through hard work. Unless you walk out into the unknown, the odds of making a profound difference in your life are pretty low. Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare. All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

It is fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change. But change is constant. Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves – to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today. It is a process of diverting one’s scattered forces into one powerful channel.

The future calls for different kind of leadership. We turn to the mighty elephant - a wise leader and a symbol of character. The remarkable traits of the elephant, as a metaphor, are applied to a new style of leadership, when we look for a time and cost effective alternatives for dispute resolutions instead of litigation. We rejuvenate this awareness in people and demonstrate the process of commitment through Mediation Perseverance and Leadership training courses, seminars and workshops.
