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 and conducts in-person mediations throughout the GTA and virtual mediations throughout Ontario. He has extensive experience working with small businesses, entrepreneurs and throughout the health care spectrum.
Workplace restoration aims to improve the health and safety of a workplace in the midst of conflict. It involves exploring how a workplace functions, analyzing information to provide insight into what could be the cause of the problems and offering tangible solutions for implementation.
Julian brings years of qualitative research and analysis experience, certifications in Advanced Workplace Restoration and as a Workplace Fairness Analyst, and a license as a Private Investigator 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 for any individual or workplace. Julian has years of experience teaching and training these topics in institutions and organizations from Universities to NGOs.
