Conflict and Dispute Resolution

Gay Pavelka

Gay has over 30 years experience providing training, mediation and facilitation services to clients from experiencing disputes from:

  • education
  • health
  • environment
  • local and central government
  • industry and commerce
  • not-for-profit service providers

Gay sees people repeatedly reaching agreements and making sound decisions. Seemingly intractable disputes are being improved and people finding new ways of working or living together.

Listening for the best in each others’ thinking and constructively challenging attitudes and ideas where needed supports change.

If you are experiencing conflict why manage alone? When continuing without seeking resolution is simply not viable remember there are safe processes that can make a difference.

Contact Gay for a confidential, free initial discussion to help you decide the best step for managing what you are experiencing.
