As a Conflict Coach, Gloria shows her clients how to stop repeating patterns that have not worked in the past and caused difficult relationships and hardship in their lives. She teaches them how to deal with difficult and challenging people and situations and how to get what they want out of their relationships in a respectful and forthright manner. She also works with groups in conflict to help them identify problems, have open discussions about how they would like things in the workplace to be and then together as a team come up with solutions that work for everyone involved.
Gloria works in person or by phone as she helps clients through conflict situations or in preparation of having a difficult conversation.
