Organizational conflict coaching: Informal, independent, neutral conflict management and dispute resolution “The Organizational Ombudsman is like a smoke-watcher, if we see signs of smoke we will investigate and, if there is a fire we will make recommendations on putting it out and preventing future fires in that area. No one expects fire, but if it does occur we need a trained eye to direct us to the source, quickly, expertly and safely”. Dr David Miller. Organizational Ombudsman, The Global Fund. Geneva. Introduction to Conflict Coaching in OrganizationsWe all deserve a positive work environment, a place where we can enjoy our work for a job well done.
