Creating Independent Problem Solvers in the Workplace

Get the Peace of Mind Knowing that Everyone in Your Workplace has the Ability to Manage Personal and Peer Conflict As It Happens

Distributive leadership requires employees with the ability and responsibility to solve problems at the ground level. I teach workplace communities the strategies, techniques and tools to solve problems.

CreativeEdge is my way of helping communities ‘do the right thing’ through joy. 

I help you get the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that every single one of your employees has the skill and responsibility to solve their own problems, as they happen.

Your Beautiful Trauma by Emi Garzitto

Looking for a step by step guide to help you through crisis? 

Your Beautiful Trauma – a practical guide to help you convert crisis into full-scale transformation. by: Emi Garzitto, (PhD, MA, BEd, BA)
Available as a paperback or in Digital Format for Kindle.

What do our customers say?

Emi facilitated a workshop on conflict management strategies for the CPHR FV Mentoring Program participants. She is very knowledgeable in her work and has an energetic personality. Her strong passion for what she does came through and energized the group. She drew conversation from the attendees, which made it a better learning experience for all. She incorporated role-play scenarios, making it more fun and a great approach for applying and retaining the information. We enjoyed learning from Emi and will definitely bring her back for another workshop.

Dr. Garzitto is an expert conflict coach.
Her unique strategies gave me the skills, and the practice to level up my communication skills.
She provided a safe and confident space to learn and then implement clear approaches that focused on positive outcomes and respectful dialogue in a difficult situation that I had with a colleague, who I had been struggling with! She provided me with the courage to engage in.
Her approach is both professional and playful – two qualities that come in handy when working with conflict!
