Dr. Tammy Lenski helps organizations, leaders, mediators, and coaches improve their conflict resolution effectiveness.

Since founding her U.S. conflict resolution firm in 1997, she’s guided thousands of organizations and individuals worldwide as a master mediator, executive coach, speaker, educator, and author.

Her work today centers on “hacking” conflict resolution – tapping leading edge practices, the latest research, and her 20 years of experience as a mediator and coach to help people better navigate and manage conflict.

She was the very first mediator in the world accepted into the Association for Conflict Resolution’s Academy of Advanced Practitioners.

In 2012 the Association recognized her achievements with the prestigious Mary Parker Follett Award for innovative and pioneering work in the conflict resolution field. In 2015, the New England Association for Conflict Resolution recognized Tammy with the Pioneer Award for significant contributions to the conflict resolution community and passionate commitment to the profession’s growth and development.

Tammy is the author of The Conflict Pivot, released in 2014, and the award-winning Making Mediation Your Day Job, now in its third edition. She’s been blogging about conflict resolution and ADR private practice since 2002.

Tammy began her career in higher education, serving as a dean and VP, then later as a founding faculty member of the world’s first master’s degree in mediation, now housed at Champlain College. In addition to her full-time conflict resolution work, she still teaches graduate courses in conflict resolution and negotiation for Marlboro Graduate School and for the Institute for Conflict Management at Lipscomb University.
