faith communIties

The needs of Faith Communities are somewhat unique in that relationships tend to be closer and more caring than in other organizations, but are not “families” in the traditional sense. Disagreements can arise in regard to beliefs as well as individual relationships, and ripple effect of these conflicts can have a significantly negative impact on the entire faith community.

Our Restorative Mediation services are ideally suited to promote reconciliation through clarifying the underlying causes and providing opportunities for meaningful dialogue. This helps to restore relationships, harmony and understanding, and prevent future occurrences.

The development of conflict resolution and peaceable communication programs tailored to the specific needs of a congregation can also help to provide long term solutions.

We also provide leadership and HR coaching for churches, and assist with succession planning.  Assistance with worship design is provided through one of our associates.

— Training Participants

“Colette was exceptionally helpful with putting into words what I was sensing or feeling, and she helped me define where I was at.  She had really good intuition for the feeling and atmosphere in the room, and when each party needed a pause, or a private check in.  She moved us forward through the mediation process with a logical, efficient approach that didn’t rush us, with really practical steps to help us build a plan for the future, with follow up and tools to work with.”
