Meet the Team
David Liddle – Author of the Resolution Framework™
Following an extensive background in using mediation to resolve a whole variety of conflicts, David Liddle founded the TCM Group in 2001. Throughout his career as a mediator, David has seen widely accepted views that mediation and constructive dialogue worked far better than traditional approaches to conflict resolution. Yet the biggest barrier that he came across was employees, unions, HR and managers seemingly irrational obsession with the traditional discipline and grievance framework.
Recognising that a new approach was needed, David decided what he needed to do was to tear up these traditional documents and replace them with an entirely new framework. Over 8 years later, The Resolution Framework is now embedded in numerous organisations across the UK, and beyond.
