Mediation is the fastest growing form of alternative dispute resolution. A mediator acts as a neutral third party who encourages and assists positive communication and collaboration between parties to negotiate a solution to the dispute.
Julian is a professionally designated mediator. He is currently affiliated with A Place for Mediation, located at Bay and Bloor in Toronto. He conducts in-person mediations throughout the GTA and virtual mediations throughout Ontario.
Workplace restoration involves investigating how a workplace functions, analyzing data to provide insight into what aspects of the workplace can change, and offering tangible solutions for implementation.
Julian brings years of qualitative research and analysis experience, and certifications in Advanced Workplace Restoration and as a Workplace Fairness Analyst, to provide precise and comprehensive solutions to improve the health and fairness of any workplace.
Studies show that regularly encountering situations perceived to be unethical can cause a negative emotional state called "moral distress," which leads to poor mental health and limits productivity. Ethics consultations can help individuals and businesses ensure that their behaviour is ethical, and as a result, improve morale and productivity.
Conflict resolution skills and an understanding of ethics are essential skills for any individual or workplace. Julian has years of teaching these topics at institutions at the highest levels of academia to local NGOs.
