As she explains in the podcast episode, Charmaine’s first career was in jail as a correctional officer. Being 19 and this being her first career, Charmaine realized she had a passion for conflict resolution, however also recognized that she had a lot to learn. After leaving that position, Charmaine went on to complete her Master’s Degree and soon after started her own Mediation Practice where she has been helping multiple types of organizations in the area of conflict resolution and mediation for the last 20 plus years. One of the issues talked about in the Employer Blueprint Podcast episode is when an employee transitions from being on a team to leading that team. Charmaine talks about problems with trust, and friendships ending from a new manager trying to manage people who were once coworkers. Kyle and Charmaine have an awesome conversation about topics that they are both very passionate about, and both love talking and learning about.
