A Mediator is an independent, impartial third party who supports clients to settle disputes by reaching a mutual agreement. Mediation follows a clearly structured procedure, beginning with the first meeting of founding the basis for the process and ending with a (written or oral) settlement for the future.
The five Steps of Mediation
STEP 1: Introduction of mediation by making a contact, working out the basic rules and the framework of the mediation
STEP 2: Agreement on the topics and questions that should be addressed in mediation
STEP 3: Dealing with conflicts by shedding light on background and feelings, formulating needs, negotiating along the parties’ interests
STEP 4: Development of possible solutions, negotiation and agreement over criteria for decisions
STEP 5: Conclusion of the mediation with a (binding) contract and a self-reflective review
A facilitator, team supervisor or trainer supports organizations and teams to find and understand their common objectives, to reflect and discuss their past performance and to improve future collaboration and communication.
Supervision or trainings enable teams to improve their procedures and to find the best suitable ways to handle work, customer relations, conflicts, and challenges. The goal of this process is to mutually build a strong basis for future work performance and collaboration.
Isabell Luetkehaus offers workshops, seminars and training on topics including communications, change management, negotiation, conflict management and work-life balance.
A coach supports his client (coachee) to self reflect, revise and improve his working, co-operational and communication skills. Framed by a coaching plan, coach and coachee first set specific goals and objectives for the coaching process and the future development. Throughout the coaching, the confidential and personal relation between the coach and coachee allows to focus on individual needs and accomplishments, close observation, personal encouragement, impartial and non-judgmental feedback and guidance.
Coaching commonly addresses attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge. The goal is to improve performance, develop and learn new skills, find success in personal and business relationships, achieve goals and better manage work-related and personal conflicts, challenges and changes.
