That C Word

As a mediator and conflict coach, I help managers and their teams to stop losing sleep over everyday conflict and build more collaborative workplaces.

I don’t make the rules, I just enforce them.

What if you could get a do-over after 25 years in your career?

Derrick Hoare spend the majority of his career as a health care administrator and manager of long-term care and assisted living homes.

He describes his problem-solving style as ‘Carrot and stick’, an ‘us vs. them’ conflict management style. After 25 years, he retired but often thought he would have liked to have approached problem solving differently. When he was offered the opportunity to return to work operating nine assisted living homes, he decided to do just that.

Today Derrick is a Chef and proprietor of The Table Culinary Studio. Join us as we discuss his career in health care, the evolution of
his management and conflict resolution style, what he learned that he brought to his current work and… that ‘C’ word.
