The Stitt Feld Handy Group is an Alternative Dispute Resolution firm specializing in professional development training and dispute resolution services.

Training

The Stitt Feld Handy Group conducts four-day public workshops on negotiation, mediation and dispute resolution (ADR) and three-day workshops on dealing with difficult people.  We use an interactive approach, as participants learn by doing rather than by listening to lectures.  We strive to give our workshop participants the skills and confidence to Expect Success.

We have trained over 29,000 people in mediation, negotiation and communication skills.  Our workshops are conducted in North America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia.

Upon completion of our public workshops, participants earn a Certificate from the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law (Canada).

We design and conduct customised workshops for clients in both the private and public sectors.  We work closely with our clients to develop a curriculum that works for them.  We offer a broad range of customised professional development programmes, including negotiation, mediation,  and dealing with difficult people.

The members of the Stitt Feld Handy Group are alternative dispute resolution trainers, mediators, arbitrators, and negotiation consultants.

 
"This workshop has provided me with the skills that are required to deal with issues that arise in the workplace.  It has given me the tools to reshape the future.  I really liked the role plays and the varied opportunities I had to mediate."
Miriam Samaru, Eugene Dupach Law School, Nassau, Bahamas
