What is a Facilitated Conversation?


Sometimes people just need a little help to move past a dispute that is getting in the way of a good working relationship or productivity.  So often these disputes arise from a misunderstanding or misperception.  A facilitated conversation gives the parties an opportunity to sit down with a third party, as the facilitator, in an informal meeting and talk through the issues and agree a way forward.  It uses the mediation skills and techniques but is usually completed in a shorter period of time.  It is particularly suitable for disputes that have recently arisen.
