Jun 3, 2021


In today’s episode, we meet Damali Peterman, attorney and CEO of Breakthrough ADR, a firm that teaches people how to listen, negotiate and resolve conflict in the workplace and beyond. After seeing too many unnecessary and avoidable conflicts arise with clients, Damali decided to provide a service that empowers business owners with tools and techniques to manage conflicts with their partners before they ever need to seek an attorney’s help.

During our conversation, we talk about all things business partnerships, including how to set up the proper legal protections before you start a new business relationship. Damali gives insightful advice on mitigating an impasse on decisions, the best communication techniques to de-escalate conflict, and how we can all learn to listen more effectively.
