Jayne Nucete


Jayne Nucete is a Principal with CMPartners and the Bridgeway Group, where she delivers training on negotiation, conflict resolution, and facilitation skills. Jayne is a mediator, facilitator, and experiential educator with extensive experience in small group facilitation and conflict mediation. Ms. Nucete has been facilitating interpersonal skills workshops since 1998. She has delivered training in collaborative negotiation and consensus building for U.S. federal managers, civil society leaders in Guyana, and public health professionals from Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Southeast Asia, youth-at-risk, and professionals in the public and private sectors.

Previously, she was the Associate Director and Training Manager for the ICONS Project at the University of Maryland, and in that role she directly managed client relationships at each stage of program development and delivery – from the first point of contact to contract negotiation, curriculum planning, and final program delivery. Her work at University of Maryland focused on using role play simulations to teach negotiation and crisis leadership in the workplace.

In addition, Jayne was an instructor and program manager for Voyageur Outward Bound School. She is an adept outdoorswoman who has spent more than 700 days leading wilderness expeditions through challenging terrain and (often more challenging) group dynamics. In Malaysia, she facilitated leadership training for rising managers at a major bank. In Mexico, she facilitated cross-cultural exchanges and sustained professional relationships with villagers in the remote Copper Canyon. Jayne has also extensively negotiated difficult conversations between youth-at-risk and their parents as they attempted to improve their relationships. She volunteers as a mediator and cross-cultural dialogue facilitator.

Jayne earned her MA in International Relations, Conflict Management, and International Economics from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Bologna, Italy, and Washington, DC. She holds a BSW in Social Work and a BA in Spanish from the University of Missouri.
