“TCM has been used several times by DWP over the years, we’ve received very positive feedback from our mediators from every course that’s been run. We have a great relationship, TCM has fantastic offers/networking events and I hope we will continue to see more of this. The training that TCM delivered was extremely effective and engaging. Even those trained by TCM from other government departments have had nothing but good things to say. TCM benefited us by giving us the ability for our organisation to offer an outstanding mediation service which is continuing to grow. If was up to me we’d choose TCM every time, but I understand we have internal processes to follow. I look forward to us working together in future, hopefully not just the training of new mediators, but other events too.”

Ambitious About Autism
Poonam Bhatt HR Advisor at Ambitious About Autism

“TCM is a reputation exceeding other organisations. TCM provided the specialist skills for the Mediation Course ensuring that the small groups allowed the focus to work through the mediation approach and style. The course was extremely effective as the practical element I was able to take away and use the skills when mediating at work.  I was able to share my skills and knowledge with managers within the organisation and use the skills effectively. TCM helped by bringing benefits into our organisation by enhancing the need for mediation before taking the formal route of capability. I will always recommend TCM to others due to the personable training that was delivered and the effective approach.”

Medecins Sans Frontieres
Christine Stanbury HR Manager at Médecins Sans Frontières

“I chose TCM because their accredited mediation course was more suited to the culture of the organisation I work for. The course was inspiring, clear and supportive for such an intense and focussed subject, it was excellent! I apply the knowledge daily to improve my skills and experience and I will definitely explore attending other training courses with TCM.”

Louise Cameron HR Business Partner at Santander UK

“The TCM Group came on the back of a very strong recommendation by a reputable contact who had already completed the National Certificate in Workplace Mediation course. The course itself was very effective – insightful and practical. The tutor support and feedback were excellent! Training with TCM meant that I was able to develop my skills to resolve complex workplace disputes. The ongoing events/webinars/seminars hosted by the TCM are fantastic and I would definitely recommend them to any of my colleagues/networks/friends.”

David Corbin Equality & Diversity Manager at Dorset Healthcare

“After looking at several companies I attended one of TCM’s taster sessions. Following that I booked to attend the full course. The service overall was outstanding, and the professionalism of the trainers was outstanding. I still use the supporting material today as a guide. Since I became trained my Trust has now invested in three further Workplace Mediators and we have just completed an 18-month report on the cases we have had referred. We also meet monthly for a debriefing session to discuss cases. We are in the process of reviewing our Grievance Policy and Mediation is already listed as an early intervention before moving to a full-blown investigation. To be completely honest I have always found my interactions with TCM very positive. I feel that I can approach the team at any time for advice and linking into the Webinars is always a good reminder of why we take the steps to resolve issues at the lowest possible level.”

Pippa Byrne Former Head of HR at Hugo Boss

“We wanted to review the way that we deal with challenges in the workplace. As a result of the training with TCM, I am now more confident to facilitate win-win outcomes.”

Employee Relations Advisor at RSPCA Emily Stuart

“The mediation training that was delivered by TCM was enjoyed by all delegates on the course, we all felt that we had learnt a new skill that we could not only use to benefit the organisation but one that we could take away into our personal and professional lives. The trainer Bola was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Would strongly recommend this course.”

TCM and the Association of Project Management
Jacob Achenbach Programme Manager at Rolls-Royce & Chair of Events at APM

“I invited David to organise a seminar for the Association for Project Management (APM) to help project management professionals develop conflict resolution and mediation skills. David’s workshop was excellent; it was full of expertise and humour, allowed the delegates to reflect and speak about their experiences openly and provided us with a lot of practical tips on how to manage, and make the most of, disagreements in a workplace. David is a true professional with an ability to make a difference and it was a pleasure to work with him.”

“The trainer’s delivery of the course has been just the right balance between being informative as well as enjoyable. The course covered a number of key areas in a short space of time, but did not feel overwhelming. The trainer gave us the opportunity to reflect back on our learning through engaging activities which has proven to be meaningful and has personally given me the confidence to start using new skills and implement the learning acquired especially around leadership traits and styles.”

We chose to go with the Quality Conversations training as we wanted to equip our first-time managers with a toolkit to handle common challenges like giving feedback, leading tricky conversations and managing conflict. Our trainer, Aideen, was a fabulous facilitator and she shared useful strategies with everyone. She made the training into an interactive conversation with everyone feeling involved and included.”

Mediation Services

So successful are our mediation services that 93% of cases reach a favorable outcome for all involved. In doing so, we save organizations valuable time, money and stress in comparison to traditional HR procedures. Below you’ll find a collection of reviews from satisfied customers and those involved in the process!

Catherine Anderson
Organisational Development Manager at oneSource
“The TCM Group are a great organisation with great people who are passionate about mediation and resolution. We have worked with TCM for over 5 years to deliver a wide range of mediation and conflict management courses and services for the local authorities that we support. We have recommended TCM's mediation, training and consultancy services to many others and they have always been as impressed as we are.”
Julie Plant
Head of Learning and Development at Brandon Trust
“Our managers say they can’t believe how far two people can come in just one day when things have been so bad between them for so long”.
Jackie Newman Head of HR at P. D. Hook (Hatcheries) Ltd

“You will not be disappointed if you book with TCM.”

Steven Shaw HR Business Partner at Royal College of General Practitioners

“TCM are excellent and specialise in mediation services. They really are the experts in this field. I have used TCM several times and always get good results from them. David and his team always go that extra mile for you. If you do a cost-benefit analysis, TCM are able to save organisations considerable amounts of money. It is also highly rewarding to see staff working together again in a really positive way (in the majority of cases). TCM have a 92% success rate and I would not go anywhere else.”

London borough of Hillingdon

“We have been working with TCM, in order to set up an In-house Mediation Service.  TCM trainers have a passion for resolving conflict & their enthusiasm both engages, inspires and energises others.”

Julie Plant Head of Learning and Development at Brandon Trust

“Our managers say they can’t believe how far two people can come in just one day when things have been so bad between them for so long”.

Carole Russell ER Manager at BT Group

Over the past two years, mediation has made a significant contribution to our business. By working with TCM to train a team of internal mediators, we have already cut the cost of conflict by many hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Metropolitan Police
Geri Brownrigg Professional Standards Unit at National Headquarters of Counter Terrorism Policing

“I would wholeheartedly recommend The TCM Group to anyone looking to implement mediation/resolution into their workplace. They are extremely professional, incredibly knowledgeable and very welcoming and relaxed in their approach.”

Jonathan Goodger Senior Employee Relations Manager at TSB

“It’s very rare to come across someone who is quite so passionate about their area of expertise. David (and the whole TCM team) have been extremely professional, knowledgeable, supportive and not to mention a little patient as we work to implement our mediation scheme in TSB. But that’s not the half of it. What is really striking is David’s absolute belief and commitment that there is a better, more human, way of resolving conflict that benefits everyone from the impacted people to the wider business – it’s completely inspiring and wherever I go in my career from this point, the resolution of conflict is something I will focus on in a way that I never would have in the past. It’s been a pleasure to work with David and the TCM team and I hope that opportunity will crop up again in the future. His book is an excellent read as well.”

Catherine Anderson Organisational Development Manager at oneSource

Helen Snape Human Resources Manager at Care UK

“Mediation is an excellent and sustainable form of conflict resolution. The course was intense, educational, well-structured and most of all fun. I particularly liked the mixture of different learning styles that was presented by both trainers and I most certainly feel able to start mediating straight away!”

Louise Frayne Head of HR & Organisational Development at Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health

“Just a quick line to thank TCM for the recent mediation service provided to RCPCH. A very successful day and working relationships improved enormously. I have always believed in restorative processes and the service offered by TCM really is excellent and evidences that this this really is the right approach to resolving conflict.”

Mediation Participant London Borough of Islington

“A very successful meeting, very constructive and explored all of my concerns. I felt listened too and was able to voice any issues that I had wanted to raise. A very positive outcome was reached.”

Mediation Participant University of London

“I am very satisfied with the outcome. The mediator explained things well and the mediation was very well structured.“

Mediation Participant University of Nottingham

“The mediator was wonderful – I would strongly recommend TCM to anyone who is experiencing workplace conflict. Thanks to HR for funding this process – it was remarkably helpful.”

Val Ward Learning & Development Manager at Historic Royal Palaces

“Managers tell me it’s definitely a worthwhile thing to do. As they trust the process and see what can come out of it, more and more are saying “What about mediation?”

“A lot of the principles of mediation are about common sense and disagreements in the workplace often start out as simple misunderstanding.”

Mediation Participant Interflora

“The mediator listened carefully to my views and acted in a very professional manner. I was very happy with the mediators approach and outcome as she helped us to identify and evaluate a variety of constructive options.”

Elizabeth Myers Founder at The RoundTable Group

“The TCM Model for effectively and efficiently managing workplace conflict can apply to almost any conflict or dispute. We know that feelings, needs, voice and choice underlie virtually every conflict or dispute. The TCM Model focuses on these and other elements. Applying this well thought out approach enlightens and empowers participants as they navigate their way forward while learning to avoid the inflaming effects of blame and shame.”

Gemma Bromfield MD HR Consultant at Go Beyond HR Consultancy Ltd

“I have had the best experience with TCM, and I will be recommending TCM to colleagues interested in mediation.”

Team Mediation, Facilitation and Coaching Services

When we apply our early dispute resolution techniques to larger groups and teams, the results can be transformational. Hear what just a few of our recent customers had to say:

Harriette Wolff Senior HR Advisor at Royal Lancaster London

“It sticks in my mind because the colleague came out smiling. They told me ‘I’m so happy to have finally had a chance to talk. I’ve been waiting for so long to be heard.’ It made all the work seem worth it. This whole process has reminded our team members to put the human side back into their relationships. We should always be putting our employees first, they are what makes our business.”

Georgia Volpe Gender, Diversity & Inclusion Specialist at Plan International HQ

“TCM certainly met our requirements and listened to our feedback to change the initial facilitator proposed to a more compatible match which represents excellent client service. It was great working with Aideen, she was very aligned to our Plan values and took the time to understand our needs and was open to suggestions for the format of the workshop and she also asked about the participants and their specific areas of interest so she had more of an idea of her audience before she met them. On the day she facilitated the session well and put everyone at ease and created an informal space that encouraged discussion and dialogue. She ensured everyone’s voices were heard and she did a good job of assimilating all of the various ideas into a visual representation of the process map which was really helpful as there were lots of suggestions from those in the room. She has also been very patient as the internal processes have delayed the next steps on this piece of work. We would definitely use TCM again and recommend to others (and have already started to do that).”

Resolution Framework & HR Policy Redesign

Integrating a Resolution Framework™ as an alternative to traditional HR policies and procedures can have a huge impact on an organization. It saves money, stress and time; while promoting positive, constructive behaviors amongst employees…

Leadership & Management Development

Leaders, at all levels, hold the single greatest influence upon the culture of an organization. Below you’ll find reviews and recommendations from attendees across our range of leadership development programs.

Carolyn Hawley HR Director at British Retail Consortium

“TCM worked with us to develop our purpose, values, behaviours and strategy. TCM’s facilitators brought professionalism, knowledge & fun to the assignment. In workshops, they encouraged a relaxed atmosphere where effective learning and contribution was valued.”

Robert Longley-Cook Chief Executive at HFT

“Had been impressed with a talk from David on achieving the benefits of ‘positive conflict’ so invited him/TCM to facilitate a process to optimise our Executive team-working. Really worked well: the power of professional external facilitation allowed us all to take more risk and confront issues in a more open way. Now have a great framework – both individual and team – for taking the team to an even better level of interaction: critical given the pressures we are facing in our business sector. And it was fun too!”

Forida Khanam Business Support Officer at London Borough of Tower Hamlets

“The Aspiring Managers programme is a great one to help give you the skills and confidence for you to take the next step into management.”

Investigations

We understand that an investigation is something that no one wants to have to happen. But when it does, it is of paramount importance that the process is conducted by a well trained and experienced investigator. Don’t just take our word for it…

Camilla Maple Investigations Officer at Dimensions

“The trainer showed outstanding knowledge on the subject and really engaged me on the course. I felt I could come forward with any thoughts or feedback at any point. The course had great content in the areas of investigations and report writing.”

HR Director Aitch Group

“TCM provided an excellent and highly professional external investigation service for us. The team was always available when we needed anything, and the investigator was incredibly efficient, thorough and personable. All in all – it was perfect!”

Corporate People Manager The Children’s Society

“I would also like to mention that I have had lots of superb feedback about your investigation – most people that were interviewed were very impressed by the investigator’s professionalism and the quick turnaround of their statements. My boss – the interim HR Director – said to me yesterday, “I do not know where you found TCM but they are good.”

HR Manager Nationwide Charity

“TCM conducted a very complex racism investigation, you were superb, it was money well spent. We would spend the money and use your company again if we were to face the same situation.”

Lyn Elliott Head of HR at Cygnet Health Care

“I am very happy with the service provided by TCM. Often in Operations we are so busy ensuring that our Service Users are well cared for, it is difficult for us to assign Managers to investigations. TCM do a fantastic job supporting us with investigations and by using TCM, we ensure investigations are impartial and outcomes are fair. The turnaround on investigations is really quick, which again is sometimes a struggle for us at Cygnet Health Care. I would thoroughly recommend TCM to support businesses.”

Key notes and presentations

Our CEO and founder David Liddle has been invited to speak for a variety of prestigious clients and received excellent accolades for his sessions…

Sarah Bidwell CIPD Black Country

“David Liddle of TCM provided a really engaging and thought provoking session aimed at helping our members to think about the compelling reasons to modernise and make dispute resolution approaches more effective. David is a fun speaker  who draws on a wealth of experience to generate debate and he provided real added value to the session with generous access for participants to TCM resources. Such a popular session we’ll be inviting him back again!”

Jules Goddard Event Coordinator at Swindon & North Wiltshire CIPD

“David Liddle from TCM recently delivered an excellent event for the Swindon and North Wiltshire CIPD. It was a very engaging session and we had some great feedback afterwards. The topic is a very important one to most if not all businesses, Redefining Resolution. We were excited to book David and he delivered a very informative and interactive evening.  David delivered some thought provoking information which made everyone begin to think about alternatives to the ‘normal’ formal grievance procedures and how to avoid the almost inevitable increase in tension within the organisation, while encouraging mediation and other informal approaches. This methodology also is very cost effective, avoiding the heavy input required from managers when trying to resolve conflict or grievances. The feedback from the group that David delivered to is overwhelmingly positive and I can highly recommend David and The TCM Group.”

Teresa Delaney South Yorkshire and District Branch of CIPD

“We are extremely grateful to David Liddle of The TCM Group for leading an insightful discussion to our members on ‘Taking the Grief out of Grievance’ earlier this year. This event which was attended by over 70 HR professionals received excellent feedback with 93% of attendees rating David’s session as good or excellent.  In particular members reported that they found the session informative and that it developed and challenged thinking around  grievance, mediation and conflict resolution, as well as leading them to consider the proposition of changing from a grievance to a resolution policy approach.”

Frank Holden Events Organiser at North Staffordshire and South Cheshire CIPD

“David led an insightful and knowledgeable discussion on the benefits of properly structured mediation interventions to resolve individual conflict issues in the work environment. He is passionate in his advocacy of the value of carefully considered mediation where communication has broken down. His thoughts on the organisation’s values and culture as the starting point to resolve issues where a breakdown in relationships has taken place was reinforced with practical steps evolved out of years of experience with what works. David is a rewarding and gifted speaker with the ability to give clear and nuanced messages in an area fraught with a lot of muddled thinking and poor personal experiences.”
