TRAINING TO BECOME A CERTIFIED MEDIATOR with a focus on strategic mediation/ interest management


Leadership is conflict resolution! This is all the more true when hierarchical structures are modified or dissolved. In project teams and when working in cross-company groups, it is increasingly important to resolve conflicts beyond the hierarchical enforcement of formal power. Special skills are required to diagnose a conflict, to understand the different perspectives on it and to develop a solution at the end. This solution will only be permanent if it is supported by all participants.

Conflicts belong to the everyday life of every company, every executive and every entreprenuer. Conflicts are not necessarily a bad thing, but – apart from “pathological” developments – simply express the different interests and viewpoints of the participants. Conflicts are essential for achieving progress: without critical discussions, innovation and advances would not be possible.

The skills needed to turn a conflict into an added value can be learned and practiced. Mediation as a structured process for the constructive resolution of conflicts is the world’s most recognized method for resolving conflicts without the use of power and hierarchy, but through arguments, negotiation, by identifying the interests and needs behind stubborn positions and by finding  a solution that merges the seemingly incompatible interests of the conflict parties.

For the first time in Germany, Consensus Campus offers an English-language training to become a certified mediator.

The course is particularly aimed at a highly qualified international audience looking for professional reorientation in Germany. By adhering to the requirements of the German Mediation Act (Mediationsgesetz) and the Certified Mediator Training Ordinance (Zertifizierte-Mediatoren-Ausbildungsverordnung) while being taught in English, it paves the way to a professional degree recognized by the German state. At the same time, it offers a unique opportunity for professionals from all over the world to combine their competence, whether in law, business, in the health or psycho-social sector, with a valuable toolbox to keep up with the changing realities of work.

Over a period of six months, up to ten people from different cultural and professional backgrounds will attend five three-day modules. Each training unit offers a lively mix of scientifically-based presentations, interactive exercises and role play sessions based on real conflicts, followed by a detailed review. Dr. Isabell Lütkehaus and Dr. Greg Bond are going to lead the first English language training course for certified mediators (m/f/d) under German law, supported by Dr. Andrea Hartmann-Piraudeau and Dr. Imke Wulfmeyer. Dr. Isabell Lütkehaus, certified and licensed mediator (BM, BAFM), supervisor/coach (DGSv), experienced mediation trainer and renowned author, will be present as a trainer at each of the five three-day modules, thus ensuring a consistent thread running through the entire training course. For more information on the Consensus Campus team of trainers and lecturers, see https://consensus-campus.de/en/lecturers/. After the successful completion of this mediation training in combination with a practical mediation case supervised by a senior coach or mediator, you will earn the right to use the title „Zertifizierter Mediator/Zertifizierte Mediatorin (ZMediatAusbV)“. This way, the Consensus Campus Mediation Training follows a dual approach to facilitate the career of international professionals in Germany: firstly by enhancing their leadership and conflict management skills and secondly by providing them with a legally recognized professional qualification. With these accomplishments, our certificate holders are excellently prepared for a career as an executive, a consultant or a mediator in their own private practice.

We wish all participants of this training a lot of joy and great success for their careers!
