Lisa Montana, Trainer

lisa montana

Senior Trainer

Lisa came to mediation from the corporate world, where she witnessed frequent disputes, most of them handled in ways that nobody liked. In a set of techniques called Nonviolent Communication, she found a model in which everybody's needs matter, and against all odds, has seen wildly antagonistic foes find common ground.

Lisa has a reputation for clarity, humor and compassion, and her workshops offer participants the chance to strengthen their skills in a lively and supportive atmosphere.

Lisa is a collaborative trainer at BayNVC and has been part of the teaching team for the year-long mediation program since 2008. She also offers mediation, private trainings and conflict-resolution coaching to individuals, businesses and organizations around the country.
