Grievance procedure:

Participants must bring issue or raise concerns to the Philadelphia based trainers in writing no later than 2 months after the beginning of the issue.  The trainers will work with the participant to come to an adequate resolution. 

After 1 month of discussion, if the parties cannot agree on an adequate resolution, the issue will be submitted in writing by the trainers to the head of the coach training program, Julie Rivers.  Julie has a master’s degree in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and wrote her master’s thesis on the impact of Emotional Intelligence in mediation.

 If no resolution is agreed on within 1 more month, a certified coach trainer from the Synthesis Center, which our training program is associated with, will be engaged to review all documents on the incident and make a final disposition on the issue.  All decisions from the latter will be final and conclude the process.  The decision will immediately be sent in writing to the individual bringing the issue.
