Mediation is suitable for people who have a conflict with another person (or others) and who would like to resolve this conflict without becoming involved in lengthy, costly and damaging (legal) proceedings.
Prerequisites for mediation are that the participants have the will and are prepared to work together to solve the conflict.
When do we mediate?
The mediators of BBKWmediation are called upon for conflicts in the business and public domain. Business conflicts can for example exist between colleagues, employees and managers, between and within various bodies (board, works council, supervisory board, etc.), in partnerships, companies, joint ventures, between organisations, customers and suppliers, with (semi)government. Disagreements may relate to substantive issues, but also to how people deal with each other.
Wherever cooperation or working relationships have been disrupted or are failing, we are in our element. Matters we often assist with are conflicts:
- in the workplace
- Between business partners and shareholders
- between customers and suppliers
- within care institutions and educational organisations
- with managers, directors, boards of directors, supervisory boards
- Within or with works councils
- Between franchisors and franchisees
- With (semi) government
- within associations
- in a team context
- within family businesses
In all such cases, it is often the wish to restore the relationship and trust, to make workable arrangements for a continuation of the cooperation or, on the contrary, to end the cooperation in a way that is respectful for everyone.
