Mediation Training

Mediation is more than problem solving or negotiation, it is the art of listening, guiding, and providing a safe environment where people discover what is most important to them.

A passion for being a part of the solution, a mediator plays an active role in offering relief to those struggling in conflict, building trust, and helping them identify their unmet needs, fears and concerns. Mediators are needed because human conflict is normal and appears in every aspect where people come together.

A rewarding and in demand career, mediators are being utilized across all sectors of the workplace, communities, religious, educational and government organizations and families and couples seeking divorce.

Phoenix Strategies is proud to offer one of the most comprehensive mediator training and conflict coaching programs in the State of Colorado. Approved and regulated by the Colorado Department of Education, Private Occupational School Board.
