The Resolvers method

Since the 1960s, much research has been carried out in the United States and Europe on:

  • Negotiation :

    Including “reasoned negotiation” developed by Professors Fisher and Ury of Harvard University.

  • Psychology and Sociology :

    Including the emergence of neuro-linguistic programming, transactional analysis and systemic analysis.

  • Communication :

    With the development of techniques such as non-violent communication, empathic active listening, brainstorming etc.

  • Mediation :

    With various schools such as transformative mediation, facilitative, directive, with or without asides, centered on rights or interests or emotions etc.

  • Neuroscience :

    Including the discovery of the role of emotion in our understanding of the world and in our individual and organizational decision-making system.

These various discoveries and inventions have sometimes turned into schools and chapels around various professors and gurus. No method should prevail. Each has its place according to the situations and the parties.

The Resolvers method integrates the latest techniques to make you effective negotiators and mediators in all circumstances.

The Resolvers method is the only one that embraces negotiation and mediation.

We have also studied and taught how the parties and their counsel can prepare mediation to best serve the interests they represent.
