Conflict and Dispute Resolution Programs in Trinidad and Tobago


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

We were recently featured in Maclean's Magazine.  It is a short article about the benefits of proper conflict management skills.  You can view the article here.

Training

The Stitt Feld Handy Group conducts four-day public workshops on negotiation, mediation and dispute resolution (ADR) and three-day public 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 26,000 people in mediation, negotiation and communication skills.  Our workshops are conducted in North America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia.  We have held workshops in Trinidad & Tobago since 1999.

Upon completion of our public ADR  and Dealing With Difficult People workshops, participants earn a Certificate from the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law (Canada).  Our ADR workshops are accredited by The Mediation Board of T&T.

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.

 
"I learned how to handle confrontational situations. I am now able to deal with people in a way so we both gain from the experience. I am now able to negotiate better deals for my organization. I have developed better relationships with suppliers and it is benefiting the organization"
