The Mediation Training Institute (MTI) ® is the foremost provider of training, certification, licensing, and consulting in workplace conflict management and mediation. Through the institute, we offer programs and products for conflict resolution and mediation including a variety of mediation certification programs.
Having trained and coached thousands of individuals and teams from all kinds of industries over several years, we are very experienced at helping people improve their conflict management skills. Whether it’s helping one individual to be more direct in addressing conflict or an entire team to capitalize on their group strengths, we use many resources to help people resolve differences and improve relationships.
Our flagship product, the Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP), is a behaviorally-based assessment that helps individuals identify how they respond to conflict. Two versions of the instrument—the CDP-Individual (CDP-I) and CDP-360—provide practical solutions for promoting more effective conflict resolution.
