To accomplish this goal, the Bridgeway Group works with individuals and organizations, offering training in negotiation, communication, leadership, and peacebuilding skills. In addition, the Bridgeway Group strives to provide best practice through coaching, strategic advice, and innovative tools, designed to help transform the negotiation and conflict management cultures of those communities with whom they work.
