Unresolved, mismanaged or litigated corporate conflict and disputes will negatively impact company profits, customer service, corporate culture, employee morale and productivity. Conflict management training and coaching of managers and employees and mediating disputes before they reach litigation with lawyers mitigate the negative impacts of disputes and instead turn conflict into opportunity.
Neutral Third Party ∙ Calming Presence ∙ Strategic Plan ∙ Creative Resolutions
Conflict mediation is an affordable alternative dispute resolution method of resolving conflict in both family and corporate matters outside of the traditional more adversarial legal system or courtroom where you decide the outcome, instead of a judge.
PRM Mediation brings two conflicting parties to the table, along with a professional mediator. It is the role of the mediator to act as a neutral third party to hear both sides of the story to be able to determine the root cause of the conflict and then to create a future-based plan as determined by both parties with optimal outcomes for all concerned. Clients can be spared the traumatic experience of having to go to court or be subjected to drawn out legal exchanges – between divorce lawyers or corporate lawyers – which in the long run not only saves dignity, but also time and money and does not do irreparable harm to reputations and relationships. Both parties work with a mediator as participants rather than combatants to formulate a resolution agreement which is workable and helps optimize wealth and create a win-win for both.
PRM Mediation Focuses on Areas Where the Highest Incidence of Conflict Occurs
In divorce and separation, our mediation has a focus on protecting children by creating workable parenting plans which include housing, child support, visitation and custody as well as future-based planning for children’s ongoing needs including education. Division of Net Family Property includes restructuring debt, minimizing taxes and balancing liquidity between couples. We work hand in hand with Divorce Lawyers to finalize separation agreements.
In Elder Care, a delicate balance is needed in transitioning roles and responsibilities. Assessing living situations, day-to-day activities and finding the best options for an elder person can be difficult for family members. Situations are further complicated by second marriages and step children. Care providers and agencies have legal and legislative responsibilities in providing their services which can be compromised or challenged when conflict occurs. We work with all stakeholders to find a solution in the best interests of the elder person and avoid the cost and trauma of a legal battle with lawyers – especially for the elder person.
In corporate conflict, our aim is to provide management and employees with the skills and tools to proactively resolve internal and external conflict and change it into an opportunity for growth, innovation and success. Where necessary we mediate a resolution. How a company resolves issues is closely observed by the rest of the organization and its customers.
What clients are saying
“Thank you for all your hard work, patience and support.”
“I hope your business is thriving and growing well. I have recommended you to a number of people. Your help is appreciated – helping folks reduce their financial exposure, make sound choices and be on the road to recovering from loss.”
“My husband and I met Mary Krauel when we were in the process of separating after a twenty-nine year marriage. Mary showed us how we could indeed deal with this difficult, emotional and life-altering situation with dignity, and negotiate with each other in good faith. For someone considering separation and/or divorce, I would highly recommend mediation. I do not believe you could find a mediator more competent, gracious and knowledgeable than Mary. She made our experience as amicable as possible and we are both very thankful and appreciative.”
“Mary, I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me (and my husband). I feel like 50 lbs have been taken off my shoulders. You are a wonderful, wonderful moderator. I finally feel like there is hope going forward.”
“Mary has guided me through an extremely difficult separation. I was grateful to work with someone with such attention to detail and who was professional and empathetic at the same time. Through the process there has been a limited amount of time required from lawyers. She is very dedicated to her clients and I would highly recommend her. Thanks Mary.
“No other avenue and/or person has done what Mary Krauel has done for us during our uphill battle of our divorce process. Mary helped us eliminate conflict and bitterness with each other during the parenting plan phase and helped us to focus on the main priority: our children. Mary helped us reach our goal of communicating and negotiating respectfully…and helped guide us to a more peaceful and fair resolution. I have and will continue to recommend Mary to anyone in the same situation so they do not have to experience what I went through with a lawyer/court. THANK YOU and my children thank you too as they see a more friendly relationship between their mom and dad!
