ThoughtBridge originated out of the Harvard Negotiation Project founded by Roger Fisher, Williston Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and Howard Raiffa of Harvard Business School.
In the past 14 years, ThoughtBridge has used and adapted the tools and processes first written in Fisher's bestselling book Getting to Yes.
ThoughtBridge is nationally recognized for its expertise in conflict management, mediation, and negotiation. The company's diverse clientele range from Fortune 500 Companies to educational systems. Its training workshops are noted for preparing leaders to deal constructively and effectively with conflict and change.
In 2002 ThoughtBridge formed several strategic alliances, one of which was with Trustee Leadership Development, Inc., a center for leadership development and governance founded by Katherine Tyler Scott. This collaboration demonstrated the need for an integrated approach that combines technical and adaptive skills and internal and external capacities to achieve transformational results in individuals, organizations, and communities.
In 2006 we re-branded ThoughtBridge to reflect our response to this need and renamed our company Ki ThoughtBridge. The new look and name reflects our expanded services, programs, and resources in adaptive leadership, organizational development, negotiation, and transformation.
