Marlene’s work with people and their organizations is based upon the deeply-held beliefs that respectful communication is the foundation of a well-functioning and productive organization, and that most people possess the will and wisdom needed for collaborative problem-solving. Marlene’s commitment is to engage and nurture this capacity so that productive relationships are preserved, and the organization is enabled to devote its resources to its mission, rather than spend on litigation and the cost of conflict.. To substantively advance this core belief, Marlene has authored and advocated for the Respectful Workplace Resolution, to be introduced in Santa Fe City Council and by the Santa Fe Board of County Commissioners in fall 2010. This resolution, if passed, will be the first initiative of its kind in the nation.
