The Essential Skills
Mike has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution. He has over twenty years of experience as a leader in the mediation and conflict resolution field. Mike believes that education and training is largely about giving hope - people often come to a training to address a particular situation, and they want to leave with a plan to change it. In addition to facilitating workshops, he is a Mediator and is co-author of the book, The Culture Question. Mike is the author many of ACHIEVE’s workshops including Emotional Intelligence and Mediation. As a trainer, he uses his experiences working in a manufacturing environment, inner-city drop-in, boys camp, and as a mediator to illustrate the material. Mike has an interactive and engaging style that easily motivates participants to incorporate workshop material into their own environments. Read blogs written by Mike here.
