Marilyn, an Engagement Director for nGenera, has lived and worked in Belgium and France for 15 years. She works as a consultant and coach leveraging her years of experience as a manager and strategist in the corporate world, her work in Organizational Development and Leadership and her current involvement with Mediators Beyond Borders.
As I move between corporate clients and the work I am doing with the NGO, Mediators Beyond Borders preparing for the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, I am struck by how we in the corporate world have so much to learn from how this amazing virtual team of mediators works togethe
This team from MBB achieves both results and process dimensions beyond anything I have experienced in many years of corporate work with senior executives in Fortune 50 organizations as well as their Organizational Development/Leadership/professionals.
There is a quality of deep listening and attentive reading (people actually purposefully and with consideration read full emails – don’t just skim and mentally take off on another agenda). I’m convinced that this is the essence of healthy collaboration.
A new C suite officer - Chief Mediation Officer would be the keystone for building collaboration that is deep and lasting, and for embedding the spirit of mediation into all of the organization’s ventures.
