What Local Mediators Who Have Attended Ken Cloke's Trainings Are Saying:

"Ken's understanding of conflict dynamics and how to successfully navigate them in all situations is far beyond anyone else I have encountered. I turn to his books time and time again for his courageous approach to mediating and being "with" people that goes much deeper than a simple technique or trick taught by the average trainer. He is respected both in the U.S. and internationally, having received countless awards and honors for his work. Despite this fact, he remains humble and curious, with the uncanny ability to make everyone he meets feel incredibly important."
