Build capacity to manage concerns earlier and more effectively

My name is Heather McGhee Peggs (BA, LL.B) and I work with individuals and organizations to identify practical ways to prevent and resolve disputes. I’ve seen over 20+ years working in conflict management as a litigator, mediator, ombuds, trainer, and coach, how early resolution approaches can improve working relationships and build fair and equitable workplaces.

Conflicts can be time-consuming, expensive, and disruptive. The solution is to create opportunities to manage conflict and learn from complaints from front-line staff through to leadership. I used this approach to build an innovative and trusted conflict resolution service for over 20,000 graduate students, staff, and faculty at a large university in Toronto, Canada.

I’d like to help your organization to build capacity to deal with issues earlier and more effectively.
