GREG SPIRO MBA, CEDR Accredited Mediator

Specialist in: 

team dynamics, negotiation, 

conflict resolution challenges

"As consultant, mediator and coach I help clients to make the most of crucial strategic relationships and to lead with insight, technique and confidence. It might be a business question or a behavioural one, but it's often a bit of both."

You can see Greg on a range of organisational and leadership issues including team dynamics, leading and managing change, promoting collaborative practices internally and with strategic partners, influencing and interpersonal skills, organisational culture, exploring and developing ‘yourself’ as a leader/manager.

Some examples of 

team dynamics, negotiation or even 

conflict resolution challenges that might resonate or bring up those that are 

pertinent to you:

  • “I have to lead my team through constant change – unsure about best practice.”
  • “I find influencing and negotiating with others quite a challenge”
  • “I don’t think my boss likes me”; “My boss is over-controlling”; “I’ve got two bosses with very different agendas."
  • “There is a lot of tension in my team and no-one seems to know what to do about it.”
  • “My colleague is also my best friend – great till we have to discuss performance.”
  • “Globalising is great in principle but there are people in this business who don’t ‘get it’ about the region”
  • "Our core values are inspiring but not always implemented."
