Stress and uncertainty takes a toll,
no matter who you are

Whether you’re part of a family going through the crisis of a separation/divorce or involved in a business that is dealing with a dysfunctional team or conflict challenges, you know this truth.

Conflict is stressful. It’s uncertain. It’s exhausting. It’s painful.


Resolving conflict through mediation

At MacKinnon Communications, with years of experience and having successfully completed over 1,400 mediations, we will guide you through the mediation process to identify what needs to be resolved and how to move forward to an equitable and sustainable solution.

The mediation process is all about getting a written agreement that focuses on accountability rather than blame and on understanding rather than judgment.

The end result is a solution that:

  • Creates clarity and understanding for a path forward
  • Addresses conflict with productive communication
  • Saves you time, money, uncertainty, and stress

Family Conflict Resolution

We give you a safe and respectful space to explore and communicate what is important to you.

The key is to be heard and to be understood in order to move forward towards resolution.

The objective is to reduce stress, resolve conflict and create a path forward for you and your children.

Mediation is about changing people’s outlook from having an adversarial win/lose approach to a refocus on having productive and respectful communication together about what is important to each other, what needs to be resolved, and how to go about resolving those issues.

The primary objective of mediation with MacKinnon Communications is to facilitate and support you in arriving at a written agreement addressing all of your needs and the needs of your family or business, both now and in the future.

Mediation offers a confidential, safe and neutral environment where people are empowered to communicate together in a respectful manner in order to find their solutions to life’s challenges.

We were extremely happy with your approach and expediency. We believe your services represent what mediation should be like - progressive and reflecting the desires of the parties involved in the process.

We have been training through Mackinnon Communications with our people who are fairly new into the industry. Through the negotiation training that has been established, these individuals are coming out of the course with more confidence in having all types of conversations with the customer and have gained in their ability and confidence in the overall communication process. Through internal discussions with their peers, this becomes a course that any new employees are looking to be involved in.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and I boasted about it to my family and friends after every class! I learned so much about myself and my leadership style, and I now know where and when I need to make adjustments when leading my team. At the end of the course, I left with a list of resources to continue developing my skills and new confidence to apply the skills that I learned because of the hands-on practice with my peers.

We have had the pleasure to have Alasdair present to our membership on conflict management. Alasdair’s experience, knowledge and passion about the topic is very prevalent in his presentation with real world workplace examples. The feedback from our audience was overwhelming and we are bringing back Alasdair for future presentations. I would not hesitate to refer or recommend Alasdair’s services to anyone.
