Could you be one of our 12 Dialogue Road Map Facilitators?

Would you get fulfilment from helping others to manage conflict in their families, workplaces, communities, or businesses?

Last week a lady called Mandy wrote to me, ‘you may have seen the news about the new girl guide badges. Plenty of stuff about activism and self-development. What a shame they didn’t think to include mediation skills’. And, she is onto something. So if anyone out there has connections to the Girl Guides, I’d love an introduction!

In the meantime, I’m on the lookout for the select group who will take the Dialogue Road Map out into the world and then, maybe over time, we can make it the norm to ask for support much earlier in the conflict process.

  • Can you see yourself running your own private practice?
  • Are you willing to invest in your own personal growth and development?

Our Niche

We’ve noticed that the Dialogue Road Map fills a gap in the therapeutic and mediation service industry and our clients really like it. In fact most of our fee generating work comes from word of mouth. We have created a niche. We use the Dialogue Road Map to help individuals, families or groups to reduce conflict, improve communication and build a path to transformational change. Whether it’s a difficult parenting issue, a relationship meltdown, a workplace conflict or an individual who feels stuck and conflicted, wherever there is a communication breakdown we help our clients understand the issues, empower them to make positive changes and we stand by them on that journey.

Our Plan

Now, as more people are looking for the type of service we offer, it’s time for us to build a network of professional practitioners who can be part of a trusted network. If this sounds like something you could see yourself doing, read on….

Over the years I have been asked countless times when I would be offering a comprehensive training and up to now I have jealously guarded the secrets of the Dialogue Road Map preferring to work with those willing to commit to the work of the Centre for Peaceful Solutions, the charity I founded with David.

Now, I’m thinking about succession and we really want to create a network of 12 people who are consciously aware of themselves and others and have the capacity to balance that with sound, professional business skills.

Your Opportunity

If you’re liking this, then here’s the outline – this will initially be a one year training which will get you up and running as a sole practitioner. In the subsequent years you will subscribe to our supervision and ongoing training so that you can be fully supported to do the work while using our name and being part of our network. As your experience builds we expect some of you to progress to becoming trainers in line with a rising demand and, since I can’t be in more than one place at a time, this is a necessary next step.

Of course an opportunity like this doesn’t come cheap but then neither does the opportunity to train directly with myself and David, see the work in action, be part of our prison project and kick start your own private practice with support that comes directly from the source. And this isn’t just about the fee, demand will exceed places so there will be a selection process so you will have to demonstrate that you have what it takes.

Are you up for it?

I’ve been dreaming, imagining and envisioning a team of independent, empowered and spirited practitioners able to work with conflict situations easily and gracefully.
