A brief history of TCM...
The TCM Group was founded by David Liddle in 2001 and we have come a very long way since then. David had the vision for a specialist company to help organisations to embed a more collaborative, compassionate and co-operative way to resolve conflict at work. David has been the pioneer of a radical approach which is disrupting traditional HR and justice systems in the UK and overseas. It’s called Total Conflict Management (TCM). Almost twenty years later and TCM now has an expert team; extensive experience; unrivalled depth of knowledge and many years perfecting our mediation and conflict resolution skills. It is no surprise that we are widely regarded as the UK’s foremost provider of workplace mediation, conflict resolution, leadership development and employee relations consultancy and training.
The TCM Advantage
TCM empowers people and organisations to adopt person-centred, values based approaches to dispute and complaints resolution; employee relations; human resources; management and leadership.We work in partnership with our customers to develop their overarching people and culture strategy and embed a person-centred values based organisational culture. This includes developing the core values, systems, processes and behaviours which encourage cooperative problem solving, open dialogue and stakeholder engagement.
Our customers benefit from our insightful teaching and consultancy methods which are accessible to all. We are inspired by positive psychology, principled negotiation and emotional intelligence. We believe that an engaging, empowering and well-coordinated resolution of business challenges is more effective than the traditional, adversarial and often divisive approaches which are in use in a great many organisations.

TCM’s core values are central to everything that we do. They define the character of our organization and they underpin our relationships with each other, and our customers.
