Resolving conflict requires more than just hearing each party’s grievances. You must also set aside predisposed opinions and feelings; practice intentional listening; reduce issues to their purest essence; and find common ground while identifying and respecting non-negotiable differences.

Strategically, Harvard-trained mediator Alexis Dixon has successfully used this approach across 15 years of resolving challenging conflicts.

Based in San Diego, Dixon has mediated disputes for troubled government agencies, non-profit organizations, and Fortune 500 corporations across the U.S. and abroad. Employing humanistic psychotherapy, Dixon leads clients to solutions that honor all parties’ essential interests. 

In addition to his practice, Dixon lectures at San Diego State University and the University of San Diego. He also oversees Notes to Our Sons and Daughters, an art project that shares the wisdom of corporate and societal elders with the next generation.
