In the era of the Coronavirus
Germinal Knowledge has gone "online" !!

Our certification "Artisan of Peace" is now streamlined and fully obtainable online.

There are two parts to the certification:

  1. ValExp qualification: ValExp is a psychometric instrument that explores your personal values that determine your behavior: communication, leadership, negotiation, influence and conflict management. Go here for more information.
  2. Conflict Mediator qualification:Learn to be a catalyst in the resolution of interpersonal conflict with emphasis on conflict in the workplace.
As professional mediators, we at Germinal Knowledge have realized that, for interpersonal conflicts, the process of conflict mediation is actually responsible for resolving a large percentage of conflicts.

What does this mean?

Well, basically it means that anyone can learn to put the process in place and help others resolve their conflicts without special training as a professional mediator.

Sounds interesting, but how does it work?

The Mediation Process:

Here is how it works. The conflict mediation process, the world over, looks like this:

Now, in our new training, you learn how to play the role of the catalyst. Our training uses the book by Dr. Dana which you can download here.
