Conflict Resolution & Mediation Services
Successful leaders aren’t deterred by conflict. Instead, they learn from it. Conflict provides the foundation to develop a new way to engage with others and to better understanding yourself, supporting your work in the world.
Valerie is a licensed attorney and mediator, and is trained in collaborative law, an emerging field in alternate dispute resolution. This skill and expertise gives her a deep understanding of conflict, how to turn conflict into clarity and authentic connection, which can help you to achieve your goals, and learn new skills, using conflict as an instrument of growth. When conflict arises, you don’t want a ‘take-no-prisoner’ advocate. Instead, Valerie’s approach offers a unique combination of the clarity and detail of a trained legal counsel with the open-heartedness and compassion of a mindfulness practitioner. She can help your organization:
- Resolve conflict and move toward consensus
- Bridge differences that undermine productivity and cooperation
- Build genuine understanding, promoting greater collaboration
“It has been my pleasure and the pleasure of the faculty at Buckingham Friends School to work with Valerie Brown for the past two years. Val has led us through conversations about diversity and inclusion and has helped us open our consciousness to the unique life experiences of all people. Through her quiet strength, she has guided us through sometimes “prickly” conversations and has reminded us to look within as we learn.”
— Kathy Fluehr, Director of Admissions, Buckingham Friends School, Lahaska, PA
