Four Directions strives to create healthy organizations and relationships. Honoring, embracing and focusing the wisdom and knowledge that lay dormant in most groups, healthy organizations can be established, fair and lasting agreements developed and plans implemented.

Strategic Facilitation

When negotiating, your influence increases according to your ability to effectively communicate by establishing trustful relationships. Conflict is a natural part of most relationships, at some point, and should neither be welcomed nor avoided. It is simply to be expected.

Conflict reminds us that we are human and is often necessary for growth to occur among a group of people (and is heightened by a passionate concern for the issue). Solutions are only possible when conflict is acknowledged and dealt with openly and collaboratively amongst all involved. It is a challenge, a hurdle, but it need not be an insurmountable barrier to success. To affect change, the parties involved must have the needed skills to negotiate.

Four Directions assists by addressing inner turmoil and ineffective inter-personal relationships through the design and implementation of win-win solutions.
