Perspectives  

Peter both enjoys working collaboratively within a team structure, and autonomously as a impartial neutral.

Peter finds that project collaborations offer many opportunities to exchange perspectives and discover creative solutions through addressing problems together.

Working autonomously provides Peter opportunities to function outside the stakeholders’ web of interdependence; and a trained neutral can be particularly valuable when positions are entrenched, participants reach an impasse, communications break down, and the accumulation of spiraling costs, threats to reputations, and large amounts of waste raise the stakes.
