What distinguishes us from

all the other conflict gurus?

Our Mission

We exist to make conflict less taboo, and we're on a mission to help leaders improve how they lead themselves and others through conflict by identifying and overcoming their own conflict "ish-yous".

We partner with organizations to coach and restore key leaders who have demonstrated conflict-causing behaviors that negatively impact them, their teams, and the organization. 

What makes us different is our multi-disciplinary programming which combines academic research and theoretical frameworks with the practical applied knowledge & skills gained from high-stakes hostage negotiations and crisis intervention.

Our Approach

Conflictish™ approaches conflict & crisis resolution with an individual-first
model that incorporates our proprietary framework - The Real Tact Model®

Our unique approach not only equips leaders with the tools necessary to build their conflict competency, but it also prepares them to step into conflict confidently and courageously, taking personal accountability for themselves and responsibility for those in their care.

Our Values

Relationships are at the core of everything we do. Preserving and reconciling people are lifeblood of our business.


We are committed to personal growth and constant improvement. It is central to our ability to help others grow.


We are not bound by convention. Our success lies in challenging the status quo and finding new ways to do old things.


We do what's right, even when it's hard. We lead with integrity and strive to engender trust in everyone we encounter through a radical approach to honesty & transparency.
