The Unexpected But Powerful Tool We Use In Mediation (And In Our Lives)

May 4, 2022

One of the ways we at Prism Group live out our values of team-connectedness & company culture is by hosting semi-annual company retreats. These are days for our team to come together and think more largely about not just Prism as a purposeful organization, but also about ourselves and our own purposes and growth. Each

March 29, 2022

Prism is a people-first organization. We treat our clients like people with real human experiences (because that’s who they are!), and we are a team made up of people too. We believe in the power of people-to-people connection, and as such, we like to allow others to get to know the people that make up

The Path to Resolution: At Work, At Home & In The World

March 2, 2022

Imagine… A participating party refuses to make concessions about their case, although the path to a smoother, less stressful tomorrow is obviously in contradiction to what they say they want. How can they not see this? It’s week 3 of your spouse lamenting about their latest struggles at work, and no matter what you suggest,

Why Prism Believes Love Belongs At Work

January 31, 2022

Although, like most holidays in America, Valentine’s Day has become a consumerist celebration where women don red lipstick and painted fingernails, men take their best shot at a romantic gesture for their sweethearts, single women claim their independence with “Galentine’s” parties, and retail stores capitalize on the exorbitant amounts of money spent on chocolates and

January 13, 2022

As we enter the New Year, the Prism Team is bidding a bittersweet farewell to our behind-the-scenes “jack-of-all-trades,” Cindy, as she leaves the workforce to be able to spend more time with her grandchildren.  If you’ve visited our offices, you’ve seen (and felt!) the effects of Cindy’s magic touch— from her seasonal decor and lunchtime

Time Flies

December 9, 2021

The final months of the year always seem to pass at an exceptionally expedited pace. There is the return to school in the still-sweltering heat (at least for those of us in South Louisiana), followed by the first tease of “cool” weather in late September, then the welcomed arrival of Halloween to kick off the

The Reason for the Season

November 5, 2021

Now an overused, worn out phrase, “the reason for the season” packs a deep punch that we often don’t think twice about after having heard it for years and seen it in countless ads. “The reason for the season:” Joy. Peace. Gratitude. Our individual stories of tradition & meaning. Of course, these are among the

Taking Time In

October 14, 2021

We hear and use the term “taking time off” frequently in our culture. But the seemingly harmless preposition “off” here places focus on the thing we’re trying to get away from, rather than the thing(s) we might be seeking to move towards. In a culture hyper-focused on work and productivity, taking time “off” can be

Navigating the Challenges of Conflict

September 20, 2021

At Prism Group, one way we approach mediation differently is by focusing on conflict management rather than conflict elimination. Of course, a magic wand that eliminates conflict completely seems like the dream, but we believe a more realistic and beneficial approach is to help our clients manage their conflicts rather than try to eliminate them.
