Resolve Conflict through mediation

Use mediation to address any type of conflict in your organization. From interpersonal conflicts to contract disputes, mediation can assist parties in resolving their conflicts. Visit our mediation page to learn more. Resolve ongoing conflict in your organization with our expert mediator and mediation services.

Why Mediate with HR Academy?

Dr. Benjamin Earwicker

Dr. Benjamin Earwicker, Ph.D., has successfully mediated dozens of employment law, organizational, and interpersonal disputes.  His empathetic approach to conflict and conflict resolution ensures the best potential for reaching agreement and a way forward.  Dr. Earwicker can help figure out root issues, navigate complex disputes, and assist the parties to reach a mutually acceptable outcome. 

Mediation goes by many names: alternate dispute resolution, conflict resolution, and more.  Unlike arbitration, though, mediation does not require the parties to comply with the decision of an arbiter.  In mediation, our experienced mediator facilitates conversation and guides the parties through a process that will hopefully result in a solution created by and for the parties themselves.  Nothing is required of the parties but willingness to engage and an openness to whatever solutions emerge.  Our mediator brings a fresh perspective and the tools to make that happen.
