Sam Altman of Y-Combinator said, "The team you build is the company you build."
Now imagine building a work culture from the ground-up that harnesses conflict as FUEL for innovation and growth. Where there is NO MORE FEAR of speaking your mind when necessary. Where you, as a founder, can leverage the collective wisdom of your team to make the best possible decisions.
Ask yourself the following:
Are you providing one another with feedback that helps your team to learn and grow together?
Are you able to talk candidly with your team about uncomfortable topics in a constructive manner?
Have you formed a collective vision for your product or company, but have been unable to realize it due to internal constraints?
Are you satisfied with how your team makes decisions together, especially when there is a difference in opinion?
WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING:
Founder Check-ins · Conflict Management Training · Founder Counseling & Advisory
Exercises in Team Communication· Co-Founder Relationship Management · Constructive Feedback Training
Our mediation service for founders is both voluntary & confidential. It is designed to uncover the root causes of conflict, while shifting the focus away from past grievances and toward restoring healthy working relationships. Our expert mediators encourage both parties of a dispute to work together and create workable solutions that leave the smallest footprint possible on the business.
We have experienced founder conflict, first-hand, and understand how negative of an impact unresolved disputes can have on your business. On several occasions, we have seen how resolving conflicts early-on can lead to the avoidance of costly legal battles that jeopardize the business. Let us facilitate a safe space for you and your co-founder(s) to tackle the difficult task of reaching an amicable settlement together!
WE SPECIALIZE IN THE FOLLOWING:
Disagreements on Company Vision/Direction · Disputes Over Finances · Founder Exits
