Aventine Group offers mediation services to help address interpersonal conflict and conflict within team environments. Mediation offers a safe place to have a difficult conversation. A skilled mediator will always focus on the problem and not the person. A good mediation sessions allows all parties to see the conflict from the others perspective and understand where the conflict arose and how to deal with similar conflicts in the future. Mediated sessions teach as much as they solve problems allowing for personal growth. The best mediations leave both parties feeling heard, understood and with tools for ways forward. The power of mediation cannot be underestimated in organizations. Where there are people, there are misunderstandings and conflict. Conflict left untreated festers, spreads by involving more team members and creating very positional dynamics. Aventine has trained mediators to lead people away from positional attitudes towards a more flexible understanding.
Mergers and acquisitions, business partnerships, and contracting all require negotiations. Aventine Group offers your organization ethical negotiations based on best practices that will offer you a win/win scenario. Aventine believes in negotiations that are ethical for the environment and sustainable, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that it is a weak position to take. Negotiations are unsuccessful when they are cutthroat and don’t take people and the environment into consideration. There is always a way to have a win/win and best outcomes – you just have to be creative, strategic and know when to compromise and when to hold fast. Aventine Group will support your organization to be the best in can be and unleash its greatest potential in the best way possible.
