Mary Lou O’Kennedy is an experienced independent mediator, conflict management coach and trainer. She provides mediation as a practical solution to the inevitable disputes that arise in every business, big and small. She also provides conflict management coaching, where mediation may not be an option. Having seen the impact of poorly managed disputes and conflict, Mary Lou believes that mediation minimises the negative consequences of conflict and can sometimes restore mutually financially beneficial relationships. Used well, mediation and conflict management enable businesses to stay focused on their core activities and by not allowing conflict to escalate, creates a more positive and productive workplace for the long term. She brings 25 years experience in managing companies and people and over the past seven years in mediating disputes between shareholders, boards of directors, partnerships, allegations of bullying and/or harassment, performance management, and family business.
She is a Practitioner member of the Mediators Institute of Ireland, a CINERGY™ certified Conflict Management Coach, mentor and trainer, and a certified consultant and master trainer of the Centre for Conflict Dynamics, Eckerd College, Florida, and the Institute for Workplace Dynamics, Paris.
