About Dovetail Resolutions, LLC:
Dovetail Resolutions, LLC is a Connecticut-based mediation and consulting firm. We work with not-for-profits, businesses, families, and individuals to prevent, reduce, and resolve conflicts.
Nonprofits frequently face constructive conflict: needs that are far greater than the resources available. We help nonprofits with strategic planning and meeting facilitation to set and meet goals as effectively as possible.
Nonprofits also face many of the same challenges as for-profit businesses. We help organizations deal with destructive conflict through mediation and consulting.
Mediation is a voluntary, flexible approach to resolving disputes. Those involved, either within the nonprofit or in situations where the nonprofit itself is in conflict with another entity or individual, are able to put an end to the costs of conflict: out-of-pocket costs, distraction, emotional strain, and loss of goodwill.
Dovetail also focuses on conflicts that may arise within businesses, particularly partnerships or family-owned businesses, in the context of estate planning and settlement, and as generations struggle to make thoughtful and respectful decisions involving aging loved ones (elder mediation.)
Nonprofits that are charitable foundations or receive donations may find themselves embroiled in a conflict over estate planning or settlement issues or directly affected by one.
To dovetail is to connect distinct parts together to create a harmonious whole. In carpentry, the dovetail joint is recognized for its custom, high quality fit. At Dovetail Resolutions, we strive to serve you through creating customized resolutions to conflict that fit the interests of those involved. The dove is also seen as the bird of peace, and mediation is a proven method used by many people over the years to bring peace to the table and to end conflicts.
