Lisanne is a multi award winning, Harvard trained mediator and facilitator who has a confident, empathetic delivery and coaching style. Lisanne helps clients to be able to communicate and navigate difficult situations and conflict. Lisanne helps her clients to feel empowered to have difficult conversations and make empowering decisions in stressful times plus teaches her clients how to be the best negotiator they can be.
Lisanne has more than decade of experience in Dispute Resolution and Mediation, and has assisted hundreds of clients through the mediation process. Most recently she was a finalist at the 2022 Australian Law Awards, nominated for Australian Mediator of the year (for the third year). One of Lisanne's drivers is to build capacity in people to be able to resolve conflict within their business early and effectively so they do not need to keep bringing in external consultants to help them resolve conflict and make sure that there is early intervention so that the conflict does not escalate.
She has coached and developed students of law, lawyers, HR Consultants, accountants and other professionals to become competent in mediation skills and techniques, and also trains people to become accredited mediators in Australia.
She provides executive coaching and group coaching in leadership, mediation and negotiation skills at government departments and for corporate clients, and also holds lecturing positions at Murdoch University and the College of Law.
She is known for her patient and constructive approach, providing a safe and respectful space for each client and their unique set of circumstances. Her style is open, down to earth, accessible, transformational and she believes that the key is to empower people to have the conversations they need to have in an effective way. She works on developing her clients skills base so that they can take responsibility for resolving conflict and avoiding ongoing issues; helping themselves with the peace of mind that they are creating workable, sustainable, future proof solutions.
“There is a lot of unnecessary suffering when it comes to conflict resolution and my mission is to reduce that; why suffer when you can learn the skills to negotiate any situation so that all parties come out on top? I am passionate about empowering people to achieve results they never thought were possible”
