Testimonials from past conflict resolution workshops:

 

"Found this very helpful in using as a tool to help clarify needs + wants to resolve conflicts." Jeffrey Webster, Samaritan Services, Salvation Army
 
 "It made me think about the other persons point of view + reason." Bettina Schieferstein, Samaritan Services, Salvation Army

“The most simple yet potentially – as yet untried but I’m confident – effective conflict resolution tool I’ve encountered. Love the clarity and practicality of the Cloud. Also love the simplicity of the Cloud – even I can use it! Most particularly I love that the Cloud respects that both sides of the story are valid and everybody wins: How could that ever be a bad thing?” Parent, Health Care Professional

“The tool was based on examples that relate to realistic issues and therefore I was able to see how I could use the Cloud in my life. It (the tool) allows each side to present their ideas in a logical manner and identify solutions and assumptions, taking the emotion out of the conflict, enabling it to be solved in a win-win manner.” Public School Teacher

"...I am teased by hearing about more tools to learn about. I like simple tools I can carry and use in any situation (portable). Looking forward to sharing it and learning through practice. Can see lots of potential where this could make a great difference. Enjoyed sharing laughter, fun while learning.” Parent and Secretary, Local Business Chamber.

“Everything we heard feels simple and intuitive, the simplest solutions are almost always the best. It almost feels too simple, but it will be interesting to test its efficacy. It was delivered with enough interest to keep us all awake late into the evening, well done. I am interested in practising, thinking about it and potentially learning more. Timing was good, it doesn’t need any longer other than for practice, and this is best done on our own but may like to establish a web-based support for people newly applying the tools to trouble shoot any issues they’re having.” Parent and President local school P&C
