There is an ancient proverb that says, “you can feed a man a meal of fish and he will be satisfied that day. Or you can teach a man how to fish and he will be satisfied for the rest of his life”. Our sentiments exactly.

We don’t just train individuals to become mediators; we develop professionals with tools and techniques to help them deliver better and more profitable businesses. We understand the benefits conflict management tools and techniques bring to individuals and therefore to businesses.

Working with both our delegates and trainers we have developed conflict resolution and management training courses aimed at supporting all business and legal operations to help increase service delivery levels and client value. Our practical business programs all aim to achieve this but through different mediums. For instance one of our courses looks at ways of identifying, understanding and then managing client expectations throughout the cycle of that relationship. This enables you to spot and deal with conflict issues before they sour.

Of course if you simply want to become a mediator or acquire advanced specialist skills then you need look no further for a training provider. We continually fine-tune our approach to produce interactive and innovative programes. The AMA offers a range of courses, workshops and seminars which can be tailored to a specific orientation (e.g. Commercial Law or Family Law).
