“If you are going to be viewed as a leader in your organization and survive and thrive at work into the next century, you must develop your own conflict approach and develop a reputation for leadership in conflict management and consensus building.”  — Lynne Eisaguirre 

What can Synergy Development & Training Do For You?

Conflict resolution and building high-performance teams must be priorities for all businesses and organizations — we will help you reach those goals! Regardless of profitability, predictable conflict will ultimately interrupt, ruin, or expose issues that cannot be ignored and will not disappear on their own. It does not have to be that way.

We help you channel conflict into opportunities. Get started now!


Use conflict to positively impact relationships and the bottom line…see what it feels like on the other side of the Conflict Pain Portal™!


Synergy Development & Training is the only organization to use innovative, rarely seen, moving sand art as a part of professional development initiatives and workshops. Experience the connection between the film and training theme and realize in the first three minutes that choosing Synergy is the best decision you can make for your conflict management and bottom line!

“Viewing the sand film was a unique and innovative way to key into the theme of Dave Gerber’s presentation to our annual state league staff workshop. It brought home the point that anything worth creating — and worth creating well — has to be done at the right pace and with a team of people who can work well together. Our meeting attendees very much enjoyed the film and the way it so beautifully connected to the theme of Dave’s talk!”
