Do you find yourself struggling with problems in a business relationship? Unable to move past roadblocks with your fellow board members or work teams? Locked in an ongoing conflict with family?

When things are simple, they just flow: the group agrees quickly and executes well. But when these same teams or organizations find themselves tackling multi-pronged, complex, or emotionally-laden problems, things don’t just slow down, they STOP.

Many groups, particularly in situations where the stakes are high and team members are passionate, will find themselves at these impasses again, and again, and again.
