Sageland Mediation & Facilitation Service guides participants to their own resolutions of ongoing conflicts, helps walk people through planning and address change productively.
Workplace / Employment Mediation
Many businesses find that unresolved conflict is the largest preventable cost with which their company, organization or agency deals. Through working with Sageland Mediation to address the conflict productively and proactively, these preventable costs can be minimized or eliminated.
Married couples who are going through divorce and unmarried couples ending their relationship often need to sort out details related to their children’s living situation and divide up their assets and debts. Mediation can be a great way to reduce the cost and time spent doing so, and ensures that the parties are the ones deciding what will happen. (Family law mediation fee is $180 per hour, with reduced rate for half day and full day sessions.)
Trust / Estate Mediation
Often families and heirs find themselves in intractable conflict when attempting to resolve issues related to wills and estates. Mediation can help! The WA State Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act gives you the option of requesting mediation to sort things out. Sageland can be your guide.
Elder Care Decision Making and Transitions
The prospect of talking about transitions in independence for elders and disabled individuals frequently leaves a feeling of dread for caring family members, especially when there are unrelated unresolved family issues. Having facilitated conversation through Sageland can help get you through and allow all to have a voice in decisions.
Our facilitation services can help agencies conduct public input sessions on important topics, ensuring that all voices are heard. They can help work groups sort out how to address change productively or improve communication. They are also available for not for profit board retreats and other group meetings.
Strategic Planning Services
When your group wants/needs to do strategic planning having an outside facilitator can really help. This allows all members of the leadership team to participate fully. Services can include conducting a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats), identifying goals and prioritizing them and then developing a work plan to accomplish your goals and objectives.
