Education and Consulting

The ARIA Group, Inc. is a conflict resolution and collaborative planning firm, offering both consulting services and training.  We offer workshops, conflict assessment and intervention, dispute system design, collaborative strategic planning and evaluation services:


  • We offer conflict resolution and collaborative visioning workshops custom tailored to the specific needs of clients on both the public and private sectors.  Our training is based on the methods developed by Jay Rothman and his colleagues across the globe over the last 25 years: Action Evaluation and the ARIA Conflict Engagement model.

Dispute System Design

  • Building on ARIA training, we work with clients to design new or supplementary dispute resolution systems that will help transform conflicts and improve relationships in their workplace.  We believe in building organizational capacity to sustain the skills necessary to continue to engage conflict in productive ways.

Conflict Assessment and Intervention

  • We provide coaching and consultation to leaders in organizations and communities facing deep conflict.  We help them assess their situation and learn to move beyond seemingly irresolvable conflict patterns.

Goal-Setting and Evaluation

  • We facilitate goal-setting workshops and retreats, which include assessment services through a unique participatory process we call Action Evaluation, which helps people in organizations define, promote and monitor success.

The ARIA Group offers these services at affordable hourly and daily rates.  Please contact us to discuss the needs of your organization and how we might best assist you.
