conflict management & dispute resolution

improve bottom line profitability by managing
conflict more effectively


Conflict is perhaps the largest reducible expense within an organization. In fact, the two fastest ways to improve bottom line profitability are increasing revenues and managing conflict more effectively. On average, supervisors spend six hours a week on destructive conflict, and line employees spend even more. In a company with 500 employees, the cost of poorly managed conflict can exceed $3 million a year. Not to mention litigation expenses that easily exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars per case.

CoralBridge offers a better way. Through our Conflict Transformation Institute (CTI) we deliver comprehensive conflict management and dispute resolution services for organizations, school systems, government entities, law firms and private individuals.* CoralBridge can help your organization become more profitable by developing your conflict management skills and substantially reducing or eliminating your employment-related litigation expenses and destructive conflict. Moreover, our experienced mediators can help disputants in the litigation and pre-litigation phases of employment, business, commercial, and personal injury matters to resolve their conflicts in a timely and cost-effective manner. We maintain an affiliation with Kuest & Robinson whose unique automated assessment tool, the ACN, diagnoses the extent and cost of conflict in an organization.
