We consult with businesses, schools, hospitals, and workplaces of many kinds to share principles and practices of peacemaking. Our aim is to help others foster healthy, de-escalated, stress-free, mutually supportive, inclusive, and equitable work cultures and relationships among employees, and between employees and the clients that they serve.
Each workplace is unique. This uniqueness entails a careful attention to building tailor-made transformational consultative plans that help a business solve workplace problems that bring down productivity and mire employee relationships.
Workplace problems may revolve around the following concerns (among many):
We view these concerns as opportunities to learn and embrace principles and practices of conflict management, cross-cultural wisdom, trauma-informed care, restorative justice, and de-escalation.
We approach our work in a restorative and healing manner, emphasizing blame-free and shame-free engagement that is fact-based, investigative, and nurturing.
The recommendations that we provide are geared towards preventing problems and not just mitigating them, and creating action plans that engender lasting wellness.
Most of all, we care about passing on wisdom that leads to stress-free workplaces and supportive communal relationships.
Why wait until a problem rises to the level of seeming intractability and litigation?
We help businesses transform their relationships and cultures with fresh, just systems for intercultural and intracultural workplace peacemaking.
In our holistic approach, we work with employees and managers to foster five interrelated forms of peace:
Holistic practices like the following uplift peaceful and productive workplaces:
Our Co-Director says the following about holistic learning:
Holistic learning refers to values and practices that do no harm by advancing peaceful, healthy living within us (in our bodies and minds), between us (in our social and emotional relationships), for us (meaning, all of us equitably and inclusively, and not just a few), and for our environments and the natural world."
People always remember how others make them feel.
Human employees are not artificial intelligences.
Employees are real, heartful intelligences that thrive in mind and body, reason and feeling.
Attending to the integration of reason and feeling helps us achieve wellness in our workplace relationships.
Helping businesses make employees feel good about their work and their workplace relationships is our goal.
Holistic learning views employees as the best assets in their own uplift. Thus, our holistic approach is deeply asset-driven and salutogenic, not deficit, or pathogenic.
We view peacemaking as one of the highest expressions of holistic learning.
Rather than viewing people as broken, holistic learning views people as whole and endowed with the potential for goodness and wellness regardless of challenges, mistakes, oppressions, and offenses.
Our challenge is to keep renewing and restoring our wholeness as we care for ourselves, other people, other species, and our environment
