… The right words came to you during difficult conversations—instead of later?
… Blame bounced off you like bullets off Wonder Woman’s bracelets?
… You could overpower conflict instead of conflict overpowering you?
… The idea of a tough negotiation was actually a welcome one?
… You were sought after as a creative problem solving ace?
All of this is within your grasp. Mastering your reaction, creating breakthrough conditions, and succeeding as a conflict resolutionary are all learnable. Learn how, and you’ll increase your efficacy and advance your career.
I’m Tammy Lenski and I’ve been helping leaders, managers, business owners, and conflict resolution professionals turn the “what ifs” into reality for nearly 20 years.
Since founding my New Hampshire-based conflict resolution firm Myriaccord LLC in 1997, I’ve guided thousands of organizations, couples, and individuals worldwide as an executive coach, speaker, master mediator, educator, and author.
A member of the Academy of Advanced Practitioners in the Association for Conflict Resolution, in 2012 I received the Association’s Mary Parker Follett Award for innovative and pioneering work in the conflict resolution field.
I began my career in higher education, serving as a dean and VP, then later as a founding faculty member of the world’s first master’s degree in mediation, now housed at Champlain College. In addition to my full-time conflict resolution work, I still occasionally teach graduate courses in conflict resolution and negotiation.
I’m the author of The Conflict Pivot, released in 2014, and the award-winning Making Mediation Your Day Job. And I’ve been blogging about conflict resolution since 2002, with an archive of 1,000 conflict resolution articles available to you on this site.
