This program far exceeded my expectations. It is difficult for busy practitioners to devote 40 hours to CLE type training, but this program really delivers useful skill development and training more efficiently and effectively than you can imagine. Selena and Bernie are both masterful mediators and teachers.
"Selina....You have impeccable mediation skills in both the economic and custody sides of family law cases. Our clients laud your skills. You are at the top echelon of the mediators in the region. We know that you have a high success rate with our clients. I see the results. The progressive written updates keep me in the loop and keep the clients satisfied. We are glad you have devoted yourself to a much needed mediation practice."
"Selina Shultz is an outstanding mediation instructor. She educates through illustration and example and does an amazing job of turning a large diverse class into trained mediators. It isn’t easy teaching lawyers a new way of thinking, but Selina does it with persuasion, example and a great deal of enthusiasm. The feedback she provides to students for her students’ practice mediations is well thought out and very helpful. She is particularly good at acknowledging different points of view and style, so that students can consider what works best for their own personalities and also for the wide variety of circumstances and individuals one meets in mediations. Selina is truly one of the best educators I have ever encountered."
“When our organization was facing a crisis, we needed help from a professional organization that could help resolve the inter-personal attitudes and relationships. The Conflict Lab was able to quickly understand our organization and help diffuse some of the drama that was adversely affecting the performance of our key employees. More importantly, The Conflict Group worked with us to train our management team in how to handle difficult conversations, establish accountability, and promote better working relationships. The ongoing work on building trust among employees has put us on the right path for our future. As the owner of the company, I greatly appreciate Selina Shultz’ professionalism and dedication in helping our company to be successful for many years to come.”
