Your company’s conflict management specialist

When conflicts are bubbling beneath the surface, employees and teams are less productive and innovative, and companies end up wasting precious time and resources with high turnover rates. Organizational Ombuds serve as an independent, impartial, confidential and informal office for employees to raise concerns and discuss festering issues. Not only do Ombuds help empower these employees to better handle their situation, but we also provide vital feedback to senior leaders on key complaints and problems that they otherwise may not recognize.

Our coaching and consulting services target the specific needs of your company.

Solutions include Diversity and Inclusion, Management Skills, Group Dynamics, Team Building, Employee Burnout and Mindfulness. 

We always include a free consultation to clarify client goals and develop action-plans to achieve them. These action-plan solutions may include: facilitations, focus group discussions, online or paper surveys, and dedicated conversations with leadership and management. Coaching may be one-on-one or small-group or team coaching for up to 8 individuals.

Building Collaborative Teams

Employee relations can make or break a company’s morale, productivity, and innovation-potential. Companies save time, money, and resources when teams feel a strong sense of purpose, interconnectedness, and mutual concern. Companies large and small struggle with how to create that sense of belongingness among their staff.

Ensuring efficiency and understanding.

Most companies experience backlog when conflicts aren’t handled efficiently. Usually, this happens because there isn’t a specific system in place for how to deal with problems that may arise. For example: Who is in charge when employees aren’t getting along? To whom should an employee turn, when her manager is not listening to her? Often, the person trying to manage the situation is untrained to do so efficiently or effectively, wasting hours or weeks of work time. Harmony Strategies offers comprehensive conflict management systems design consulting, to assess the current situation, advise on opportunities for improvement, and training the right individuals to handle internal conflicts in the future.

Facilitating a safe environment.

Even the best corporations and well-run organizations experience dynamics-turbulence. We provide mediations for individuals and teams, where we guide parties to improved communication and better understanding. Through the mediation process, underlying attitudes, incidents, or work habits that are dragging down productivity can be appropriately aired and addressed, in a safe and confidential environment. Mediation brings grievances to light and helps parties develop solutions and strategies to handle the situation. Clients come away with a written agreement and/or strategic plan for how to move forward.

More often than we know, our decisions, choices, and perceptions are guided by cognitive biases that are beyond our control. These biases can lead us to think we know things that we don’t, believe truths that are actually false, and guide us to make poor choices. These choices affect our lifestyle, livelihood, and overall success. Harmony Strategies Group’s "Understanding Unconscious Bias" engages participants in deeper understanding of what unconscious bias means, how it plays out in our lives, and some options for how to tame or correct misperceptions and associations. As with all of our workshops, this program is highly interactive, such that individuals reflect and share their learning process. Book Now!
