Executive Conflict Resolution

Internal conflicts stagnate growth and threaten profits.

When professionals don’t get along, it wastes the firm’s time, consumes and replaces good energy with bad, and is emotionally draining.

Executive conflict resolution marries the art of mediation and coaching. It is a relatively quick process  that resolves internal communication breakdowns and challenges. While Eos conducts programs designed to prevent internal conflicts, we are often hired after the conflict has arisen and when individual, team, and company efficiencies and effectiveness are adversely impacted. 

Eos also helps CEOs, Managing Partners, Board members, and leaders who are not necessarily meeting expectations or who are challenged by modern-day cultural and gender communications. This service is sometimes requested as a last resort but has proven time and time to be successful. It is a highly sensitive, emotional, and often confidential coaching process that helps to bring resolution to performance issues and concerns.

Our conflict resolution process involves several steps including:

  • Joint and individual sessions

  • Communication plans

  • One-on-one coaching

  • Progress follow-up session(s)

The key is to build lasting and positive communication skills that not only resolve the dispute at hand, but also prevent future communication conflicts.

Executive mediation provides leaders with tremendous professional growth as they develop insight into their personal communication styles and behaviors. The process helps executives replace habitual counterproductive behaviors with constructive and conciliatory skill sets, enabling them not only to resolve specific disputes, but also gain skills to address and prevent future conflicts.
