It all Comes Down to People
We are composed of a team of professionals with practical experience in law, business management, sales, finance, management consulting, peace building, higher education, and other professions. Yet, each member shares a fluency in negotiation, collaborative relationship management, and professional development. It is our practical experience - applying theoretical concepts to real-world client engagements - that sets us apart from others training vendors. And it is our commitment to thought leadership - and honing new ideas in the classroom - that distinguishes us from other practitioners and advocates.
Together, Consensus senior leadership boasts more than 175 years of negotiation, relationship management,
professional development, and alternative dispute resolution experience.
The Practitioner Advantage
Each member of the Consensus team has more than fifteen years of field experience, working on behalf of clients as their negotiators and mediators. As practitioners, we routinely test and apply cutting edge strategies and theories as part of our various client situations, ranging from hostage situations to billion-dollar business transactions to political standoffs.
Accordingly, we are highly informed about the strengths inherent to different approaches and frameworks, and how various theoretical concepts would or would not apply to your contexts. Our practitioner experience translates into more concrete advice based on firsthand experience, a true understanding of how theories play out in the real world (and when popular ideas would fall short), and an ability to relate to professionals at all levels of seniority – including members of your C-suite.
