About Us

The MM story began when Robert, a seasoned organizational development consultant and executive coach, realized that most of the problems his clients experienced related to unresolved interpersonal conflict. He approached Mara, a conflict management specialist (and coincidentally, his daughter!), to explore the topic further. Through some spirited discussions, the pair decided to join forces and create a division of Robert’s existing company, Organization Insight, that would exclusively focus on improving relationships in the workplace. And thus was born Marigold Mediation.


Why the name Marigold Mediation? Marigold flowers maintain harmony in the garden by protecting crops from insects. Like marigolds, we foster healthy work environments, so our clients may “bloom where they are planted.”


We are based in Washington, DC and Greensboro, NC, but we are available to clients all over the world.
