It maybe you have a dispute brewing with a neighbour or landlord, a business dispute, a partner or spouse, or an employer. Alternative Dispute Resolution can offer you a way of expeditiously and creatively dealing with the challenges which you may be facing.

She has supported numerous ‘presenting adversaries’ into generatively thinking their way together into a place of commonly beneficial solutions, saving a great deal of financial costs, needless psychological pain, and wasted time contending the presenting challenges through the expense of the courtroom, in the process.

Civic Leadership Inspiration

Civic leaders are everyone who performs a public function based on representation and relevance, this includes the roles of business owner, civil servant, community activist, campaigner, media channel influencer and owners and more.

Civic leaders are to be defined by the challenges they face in naming, participating in and holding to account public decision making.  Their success is measured by the progress they make towards achieving a resolution.  As Kenneth Allred so helpfully described the task: civic leaders are the ‘little rudders’ that eventually turn the big ship of society’ for better or for worse. (Kenneth Allred, Harvard University)


John Paul Lederach’s work ‘The Moral Imagination’ is clear that there is an urgent requirement for Civil Society to continue to develop space to build a vision for a society where competing visions of what community life in a shared political reality might look like. This is vital in peri and post Covid 19 times, where the stakes for building better, more sustainably, with energy and intention, are higher than they have been for generations.

In the work on mediation and landscape building for shared futures, we work with models drawn from Open Table, World Café, and Appreciative Inquiry to  create a safe and protected space to discuss our visions, describe our reality and challenge each other  as civic leaders to imagine pathways between both, individually and collectively. Be in touch for a consultation on how the IbixInsight Mediation facilitators might be able to assist your peace-making, space building, bridge securing work as a civic leader today.
