Ways to Resolve Conflict

Conflict Resolution and Facilitation
The Center for Collaborative Solutions has highly trained mediators ready to help you navigate through conflict.

Mediation, Arbitration, Settlement Conferences, and Facilitation defined:


Mediation allows people in conflict to resolve their own disputes, on their own terms, with the guidance of a neutral mediator.

Settlement Conferences

A settlement conference is a more directive way to resolve a dispute. The settlement master evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of each party’s case and and helps you come to agreement.


Arbitrators listen to all sides in a dispute, then render a decision. This decision can be binding, advisory or can be appealed in court.


Facilitation helps get your organization back on track. The facilitator helps your group have a conversation, decide on goals, and create an action plan, while resolving any existing conflict.
