Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) lawyers learn about using facilitation to reduce the grounds for conflict

KENSINGTON, Md., November 6, 2015 — Michael Randel, founder and director of Maryland-based Randel Consulting Associates, led a webinar for members of the American Bar Association (ABA) Women in Dispute Resolution committee. The program focused on how building common ground, using facilitated processes with groups with differing objectives and priorities, can reduce the likelihood of conflict taking place.

Michael’s presentation introduced three case studies, each using a different approach to bring parties with different interests together. These approaches, using Scenarios, Future Search Conferences and Dialogue Mapping, can be effective in helping groups build a shared understanding of complex, messy, situations, and in fostering trusting relationships that can prevent or reduce conflictual situations. He also described the competencies that professional facilitators use in working with groups, helping them with participative processes to build agreement on objectives and relationships.

Michael is available to present these ideas and experiences in a variety of ways, ranging from keynote presentations, half-day, full-day and multi-day formats.  We also provide a range of short courses that equip people with the ability to facilitate effective meetings and workshops. Contact us for more details.

“Unleashing Results” with the Chesapeake Bay Organization Development Network

We were the keynote speaker at the october 2013 meeting of CBODN, the leading OD network in the mid-Atlantic region.

We introduced our experience working with groups that don’t always (or often!) agree with one another, but have to find a way to get together in order to address the complex, messy (“wicked”) problems that are facing them.

We shared lessons from our work with one group of organizations, which has resulted in international recognition for what they achieved together. We also described the practical tools that everyone can use to help their groups develop shared understanding and commitment on the way to achieving breakthrough results.

You can view the presentation here.
