Founder and Chief Executive of The TCM Group
David Liddle, has extensive experience of mediation and dispute resolution within a variety of contexts. In the early nineties, David established Leicestershire Mediation Service - one of the first community mediation schemes in the UK. David ran the scheme for eight years and in that time he established the Conflict Resolution in Schools Programme (CRISP), was a founding member of the Midlands Mediation Network and pioneered the use of restorative justice (RJ) to tackle youth offending. He was also active in numerous mediation, RJ, and community regeneration programmes across UK. In 2001, David established The TCM Group (TCM stands for Total Conflict Management). His vision for TCM was, and still is, to reduce the negative impact of conflict at work by creating the conditions for employees and managers to have better conversations. For the past 18 years, TCM has been at the forefront of conflict management, mediation, employee relations and leadership best practice. David has built a world class team of consultants who work with numerous household names including Royal Mail, HSBC, BT, Network Rail, BA, Aviva, The DWP, The UN and many others to develop and integrate person-centred and values-based systems, cultures and leadership practices. David was awarded his MBA with distinction after studying the use of mediation and ADR within three large organisations. David is also author of ‘MANAGING CONFLICT’ (Kogan Page/CIPD) and he is working on his second book ‘MANAGING CULTURE for the same publishers (due for publication Spring 2020). David is a father of three beautiful children and, when he is not mediating or writing, he enjoys cycling and supporting the local Cub pack in his role as Akela.
