A note from Damali:
Thank you for visiting our blog! I started Breakthrough ADR because as an attorney and mediator, I am often called to help resolve conflicts involving others. While working through these conflicts, I recognized that there were crucial steps that individuals could have taken to prevent their disputes from escalating.
I saw a need to teach people active listening, effective communication, conflict de-escalation and mediation skills. Conflicts lead to inefficiencies, the loss of good employees, stress on relationships and, at times, the involvement of law enforcement in non-emergency matters. Think about the last time you had a conflict and how you handled it. Would you have handled it differently if you had the techniques at your fingers to help you or a neutral and trusted advisor on call to help you weigh the options?
Well, now with my podcast and my interactive blog you do! I encourage all of you to challenge me with any questions you may have and urge any other people you may know who need conflict resolution mediation to call out hotline. I hope to empower individuals to become conflict resolvers and wish to be a source of creative solutions for training people on how to navigate a variety of situations. Please call into my podcast Breakthrough Barriers with Damali at (646) 363-6322 and/or write me and my team at my interactive blog What Would Damali Do?
Can’t wait to hear from you all!
