Community Boards can assist organizations, groups, collectives, startups, public agencies, and small businesses in improving their overall conflict resolution policies and operations. Drawing on our extensive 40-year expertise, we’ve developed an array of low cost options that deliver effective results.

The broad benefits of our customized services include improved communication, stress reduction, team building, early interventions for de-escalating conflicts, and improved productivity.

Custom Training

Community Boards’ custom trainings combine practical approaches with specific techniques for increasing productivity and collaboration through managing organizational and workplace related conflicts. Each training is customized to meet a client’s goals, outcomes, and needs. Our staff excel in designing approaches that complement an organization’s current conflict resolution and grievance procedures.

In our trainings, participants learn skills and strategies to address conflicts in ways that defuse hostility and facilitate proactive, peaceful problem solving. The range of our training topics include:

  • Effective communication and decision making
  • One-on-one & third party mediation
  • Anger management
  • Conflict coaching
  • Meeting facilitation
  • Intercultural communication
  • Understanding & appreciating diversity
