Course participant reviews for Stitt Feld Handy Group
Eaton Corporation, Fletcher, NC, USA
This has been one of the most professionally conducted seminars in terms of content, presentation, usefulness in applying concepts to day to day and professional situations. It was easy to be engaged for the entire 4 days.
Employee Relations, Knox City Council, Knox City, Australia
This is the best training course I have ever been to and I look forward to putting it into practice. I am actually disappointed that the course is almost over.
Barrister, Wilberforce Chambers, London, UK
Discursive method meant the information was taken in more easily. I liked the variety of methods – some lectures, some reading, role-play, and watching and dissecting videos. Watching demos and videos was particularly helpful. The premises were very good – convenient, comfortable and excellent catering. I thought the course was comprehensive, in...
Daroux Law, Trail, BC, Canada
I completed a Harvard negotiation course via ZOOM. I found the quality and organization of your courses superior to the Harvard course. In particular, Stitt Handy Group provides considerably more time for practical skill development through drills and mock mediations with coaches. Further, the smaller class size allows for more participation.

World Bank, Washington, D.C., USA
Met all my expectations ie. gave me the framework, theory and enough practice to show how ADR works. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable and obviously experienced instructors.
Principal, Toronto District School Board, Toronto, ON, Canada
The virtual instructor-led workshop was one of the best ones that I have ever participated in (and believe me I have gone to many all over the world). During the virtual workshop we were able to replicate going into breakout rooms, asking questions, connecting with our instructors and peers, etc.
Unilever Caribbean Limited, Champ Fleur, Trinidad & Tobago
We effectively used the principles and concepts from the ADR workshops to radically alter our traditional competitive mode of wage and salary negotiations with the Trade Union. Though the Trade Union initially displayed reluctance to engage in the process, and this led to unnecessary and avoidable protraction, they eventually came along and our ...

This was the most effective training due to the knowledge and experience of the instructors. I completely enjoyed the training. I found it to be such an excellent method of delivery. The virtual setting allowed for lectures, breakout opportunities and videos (nice variety).
Principal, Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, Canada
It’s the most meaningful and practical workshop that I ever attended. It provided me with a new perspective of dealing with conflict. As an administrator, it provided me with a great toolbox of skills
Certified Arbitrator and Mediator, Varnum, Riddering, Schmidt & Howlett LLP, MI, USA
This was one of the best professional education experiences of my life. I wish I had done this ten years ago. Despite my thirty years of experience, this program proves you really can teach even an old dog new tricks. By the end of day two, I received the epiphany that they and this program are brilliantly conceived.
Organisational Development Project Officer, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, Ireland
More than twenty members of staff in Beaumont Hospital completed the ADR workshop, including representatives of management and trade union activists. On the ground, the most noticeable benefit to the organization was an increased confidence among staff members in negotiation skills and joint-problem solving methods. In short, staff that complete...

Just superb! The best workshop I can recall attending! Challenging and sophisticated: I certainly gained valuable, usable skills! I enjoyed the time; I'm sorry to see it end.
Group HR and Legal Manager, Exeqtech Limited, London, UK
What I liked about the workshop was the opportunity to apply mediation principles and put knowledge into practice in a safe environment with constructive coaching and feedback. Role-plays and Exercises allowed practice, feedback and a greater understanding of how to apply the principles learned.
Director, Office of the Veterans Ombudsman, Ottawa, ON, Canada
The chance to put the theory into practice and get feedback and learn from the performances of others is fantastic - provides a great learning environment and was effectively done through ZOOM. Instructors were very effective in linking experiences to theory before and after the role plays
Logistics, FedEx Express Canada, Oakville, ON, Canada
You have definitely mastered ZOOM and it is absolutely reflective in the success of the session. I would offer to hesitant folks to just give it a shot, it really exceeded my expectation of the experience. The workshop exceeded my expectations from a technical perspective and also from a content perspective.
President, Transitions Mediation and Consulting Group, Dundas, ON, Canada
I loved the teaching style. Frequent mediator opportunities were great! Having coaches in each mediation role-play was terrific.

The workshop allowed participants to actively practise the process of mediation – facilitating the use of theory in mediating disputes through the effective use of role-plays. The workshop environment was comfortable and very conductive to learning.

The experimental learning activities were an excellent opportunity to develop skills.

Great transition from in-person to online! Everything ran like clockwork. The instructors do a fantastic job of balancing discussion with providing the content, and making the virtual workshops engaging and informative

It all came together for me in this workshop. The theory from the first and second courses was great, and in this program, I developed the “art” of mediating and the confidence I needed to move forward.
President, Lasting Solutions, Toronto, ON, Canada
Taught me a lot about myself. Role plays and coaching was extremely effective. Interpersonal skills exercise was extremely valuable. This was a very educational and valuable session. I personally believe that everyone would benefit from this type of training.

It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to practice the skills of mediation with a coach at your side at all times.
