Tailored Trainings

Every organization has unique needs. The most effective use of training is to tailor it to the specific types of conflict you are experiencing. Bobbie can consult with you over the phone or in person to develop a proposal to meet your needs. Call Bobbie today at (585) 748-8682 or email to schedule a time to talk.

“Bobbie is a wonderful trainer! She presents information in an easily accessible style, makes it easy to ask questions, has helpful hands-on exercises, and is never boring. Her ability to quickly set up a low-stress and accepting environment, even in a room full of 15 strangers, encourages the participants in her workshops to take risks in trying out new styles and working with unfamiliar problems. I routinely use the concepts I learned during her trainings in my professional and personal life.”  -Katherine Schaefer, University of Rochester

“Bobbie is incredible! Not only was she a patient, kind, and a compassionate teacher, but she is a wonderful mentor! I was fortunate enough to have had Bobbie as a Co-Instructor when I took the Divorce/Family Mediation training. Our class size was small but we were all very entrenched and engaged in the training. Bobbie helped tailor the training to meet everyone’s needs! I would not only recommend Bobbie as a Trainer/Teacher, but as a Mediator. She takes her work and profession seriously, yet she is very compassionate, ethical and caring in her delivery style.”

-Laura Buscaglia, Mediation Apprentice through CDS, Center for Dispute Resolution
