Our Journey

After working in varied industries, we noticed how conflict and dysfunction dominated businesses and ruined relationships. Our journey began in 2011, where we researched how to reduce turmoil in the workplace and to create a more communicative and productive environment. 

During this journey, our founder and CEO Keisha Stoute discovered her passion and calling in the conflict resolution field, after obtaining mediation certifications and began resolving business disputes, workplace issues, custody and divorce issues, replevins, and land lord tenant lawsuits. 

When angry and disconnected parties began to have meaningful conversations that led to agreements under her guidance, Keisha realized the importance of alternative dispute resolution services. Having the satisfaction of facilitating difficult conversations with positive outcomes resulted in the birth of Stoute Communications.

Our Mission

Our goal is to equip clients with the most effective conflict resolution and communication skills, as well as decision making tools. The knowledge that we offer can help increase workplace productivity, improve organizational dynamics, reduce  dysfunctional behaviors, resolve business disputes, redefine strained relationships and to create an amicable resolution to custody and divorce issues.
