Welcome to The Trillium Group
THE TRILLIUM GROUP specialises in conflict management. We provide a range of conflict management services to help our clients better
prevent, manage and mitigate conflicts
within their organisations. We do this by:
■ Providing systems and solutions - to better manage conflict. This usually includes designing effective strategies, policies and procedures to better manage diversity and differences within the work environment.
■ Building the capability of staff - to manage and resolve conflict themselves. This may include educating and training staff and managers in conflict management or conflict resolution and related skills, or it may involve developing enhanced communication skills.
■ Enabling relationships - either within the organisation with diverse work groups or teams, or with stakeholders outside the organisation. Our goal is to build consensus between amoung and groups with different interests or goals.
■ Resolving conflict - by acting as neutrals and using the techniques of facilitation, negotiation, conciliation, mediation and arbitration, depending on the dispute and the parties' needs.
