Jane looks at the facts that the world in which we live becomes increasingly focused on the global unrest created by the rise of a pandemic virus, racial inequality, terrorism, climate change, financial instability. As a result, people everywhere are dealing with both the external and internal sense of conflict, constant fear and uncertainty this is creating, therefore Jane is asking:
• What can we, as individuals, do to understand and transform this conflict?
• Are we being woken up to a deeper meaning and message?
• How do we find harmony and balance in a crazy world?
She helps people in all walks of life to become ReSolutionaries. Teaching them the basic skills of mediation, she enables people to deal with difference and diversity in ways that are non-adversarial and solution focused.
Her mission is to create a tribe of barefoot mediators equipped to lead and inspire others in times of change, challenge and crisis. Therefore, she has a powerful message supported by practical tools and techniques that applies to organizations of all sizes across all sectors.
The stakes couldn’t be higher for businesses right now. Critical decisions must be made each day as to how businesses are going to survive and thrive in the weeks and months ahead. And yet the ability for many leaders and managers to think and decide clearly may be challenged by;
• Disagreements with colleagues
• Tensions with family members
• Internal conflict created by the times we are living in
Jane has worked with organisations large and small including Cable & Wireless, Capita, The NHS, BAA, Bacardi- Martini, McLaren Racing, The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, ACCA and many more
Her skill is in getting people
• Talking about what matters most – both to them and to their organisation
• Motivated, energized and committed to what needs to happen next
Jane Gunn, the barefoot mediator’s approach is both interactive and fun.
