Better cooperation & conflict at work.
Together works better!

Let us work together.
Here is what I can do for you.

& mediation
How to improve dialogue and strengthen cooperation at work? How to deal with conflicts before they get out of hand? And how to bring people together after things escalated?

& coaching
How to change a working culture? How to develop strategies that unite teams and reduce conflict? And how to handle professional challenges with clarity and confidence?

How to better communicate at the workplace, even across cultural borders? How to improve leadership and cooperation skills? And how to deal with personal conflicts at work?

Paul Emtsev
Facilitator, Mediator, Consultant & Trainer
for cooperation and conflict at work.

My mission is simply explained: I want to improve cooperation and conflict at work. 

Throughout my professional life, I realized how much depends on the way we work together and deal with each other. That is why I decided to make work a better place.

Even though the mission is simple, it is not always easy to accomplish. Sometimes, positive change at work needs professional support. As a dialogue facilitator, conflict mediator, organizational consultant, communication trainer and intercultural coach, I provide expertise for individuals, teams and organizations.

I have an academic background in social & economic sciences, international cooperation and law. In my Bachelor and Master studies at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, University of Montréal, Passau University, Higher School of Economics Moscow and University College London, I specialized in conflict research, international cooperation and discourse analysis. Or in short: how people communicate and cooperate. 

Since then, I completed professional training as mediator, communication trainer, intercultural coach and international facilitator. I have advanced training in large group facilitation, professional speaking and nonviolent communication together with multiple years of experience in dialogue facilitation and conflict mediation, organizational consulting, communication and leadership training as well as international and intercultural collaboration.

In our globalized world, people work across borders. Together with a strong network of intercultural cooperation partners from various world regions, we offer specialized facilitation, mediation, consulting and training for intercultural cooperation and conflict at work.
