Mediation often saves time, money, and

achieves better outcomes through confidential

and voluntary dispute resolution that can

eliminate the need to litigate. Mediations are

confidential, so the participants can talk freely

knowing that the mediator may not appear in

court. The goal is to achieve a written and

binding agreement.

In contrast, facilitations may be held in a public

or organizational context, so the degree of

confidentiality might vary. Also, the goals of

facilitation can be tailored to fit the desired

outcome. See the column to the right for some

examples.

Meetings led by skilled neutral facilitators can lead

to remarkable results. Our process is proven with:

strategic and action plans

mission, vision, and values statements

multi-team collaboration

corporate team-building and executive

experiences

Your ideas are the building blocks. You, your team,

and your clientele have deep expertise, ideas, and

opinions about your products and services. We

respect this. Rather than tell our clients what to

think or do consultant-style, we help you tap into

collective intelligence and motivation to find

solutions that are superior to those that any isolated

individual could formulate.

During our facilitations we release the need of your

organization’s leaders to run the facilitated

meetings. This frees all participants, including

leadership, to engage with less apprehension and

more creativity.

Team Building

Multi-Team Collaboration

We use a unique team approach to team building

and the development of collaboration between

teams. As the situation warrants, we start by

engaging our clients in strategically-developed

experiences to prepare our clients for the facilitated

discussions to follow.

When possible, we engage Navy SEAL veteran, Chris

Forrest, to custom design “missions” for the team

that safely push the envelope of each team member.

Facilitated Mission, Vision

& Values Statements

It is difficult for organizations to step back and take a

fresh look themselves without getting tangled in

their interpersonal dynamics. When we facilitate

discussions focused on Mission, Vision, and Values

statements, it can be like a breath of fresh air. All

participants are honored, heard, and respected. This

leads to remarkable productivity.

Mission, vision, and values statements provide the

bedrock guiding principles of any organization. As we

help you create yours and gather your ideas (using

surveys as well as facilitation), we utilize

sophisticated qualitative coding techniques from Dr.

Hahn’s research methods textbook. The ideas and

beliefs that guide organizations are always unique

and interesting, which is why we enjoy this type of

work so much.

We don't tell you what your mission, vision, and

values statements should be; rather, we elicit your

ideas, goals, and principles. Then, we help you distill

your collective thoughts to create guiding statements

that capture the core of what your organization's

purpose, aspirations, and values.

When possible, our mission, vision, and values

projects are preceded by “executive experiences.

Please contact Chris Hahn to discuss the issues relating to the facilitation of mission, vision, and values statements.

Facilitated Strategic Plans and Action Steps

Before starting on a strategic plan or a set of action

steps, it is important to know where you want to go.

What is the mission? This is why we always start

with solid mission, vision, and values statements. If

you already have a good set, great! We will start

there and use them as a base. If your mission,

vision, and values statements need work, we can

lend a hand.

As we help you develop your strategic plan, we help

you survey your internal and external environments,

then help you work through how you want to adapt

to your environment. With this foundational work

completed, we help you drill down to time-specific

goals and plans (3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years,

5 years, etc.)

No set of goals is helpful unless action is taken to

achieve those goals are put into action. We direct

you through a collaborative decision-making process

that allows you to decide:

action-specific goals

steps necessary to complete the goals

who is responsible for accomplishing the goals

The result is an actionable guide that will help your

organization achieve its mission and vision. We don’t

tell you the answers. You develop your own goals,

action steps, and set of responsibilities. We provide

the process. We help with coding the ideas you

generate. We provide structure and guidance about

how to hone in on your measurable and clear course

of action.

Water Resources and

Natural Resources Mediation

Chris Hahn has mineral land and professional

water resource experience from his years as a

land manager of mineral exploration efforts for

Homestake Mining Company and Conoco.

Additionally, he has been trained to be a Water

Commissioner in Montana, where the

relationships between the agencies are

complex.

Water rights and land disputes often pit

otherwise friendly neighbors against each

other and they may be a source of conflict

between local employers and community

members.

Mediation is particularly valuable in these

settings because successful mediations usually

help preserve relationships, in direct contrast

to what can happen in an adversarial

courtroom.

Please contact Chris Hahn to discuss the issues relating to the mediation or facilitation of land or water resources issues.

Business and

Work Place Mediation

Business-related conflict stems from many

sources: working arrangements without written

agreements, delivery of services without

payment, disagreement between managers,

and friction between employees.

In the workplace, a simple lack of

consideration can sometimes get in the way of

productivity by diverting energy from the task

at hand. Chris Hahn can help the parties

change the quality of their conflict interaction

from negative and destructive to positive and

constructive. He helps the parties make

decisions together by allowing them to express

and build upon their views, concerns, and

ideas.

Workplace mediation offers opportunities to

improve employee morale and teamwork,

achieve higher performance, and retain

valuable employees. Mediation is recognized as

a crucial and cost-effective tool towards

resolving some of the most common and

difficult conflicts occurring in the workplace,

including:

Interpersonal Conflicts

Work Performance

Compensation

Harassment

Group Dynamics

Transition and Change Management

Please contact Chris Hahn to discuss the issues relating to the mediation or facilitation of business and workplace issues.

Family Mediation

"Thanks for your help. I am grateful we were able

to negotiate things instead of litigating! I imagine

it will continue to pay for itself as time goes on."

Father

“Thank you for your help, Chris. It was greatly

appreciated.” Mother in the same case

Mediation can be used for many kinds of family

disputes including inheritance and family

business conflicts, but the most common use

of family mediation is in association with

separation and divorce. In all cases, the

preservation and restoration of working family

relationships is more likely through mediation

than litigation. When children are involved with

divorce and separation, the stakes are even

higher. Mediation allows control to remain in

the hands of the parents, not the Court.

Mediators may not dictate outcomes nor make

recommendations to the Court. There is no

agreement if the parties do not concur during

the mediation process. Also, because of

confidentiality statutes, the parties may

discuss things openly and freely in front of the

mediator who may not report any of the

proceedings to the Court.

The voice of the children in divorce situations

may be included in some mediations, as are

the voices of adult children struggling with the

challenge of aging parents. Dr. Hahn, with his

degree in human services that focused on

marriage and family, has specialized

knowledge that can help in times of family

conflict.

The end result of a successful mediation is a

written and signed agreement that outlines the

mutual agreement of the parties. Parenting

plans, property settlements, child support

agreements, inheritance settlements, and

family business agreements may be worked

out in mediation. If lawyers are working with

the parties, the lawyers usually complete the

formal documents that are filed in the Court.
