Kathy, IPA's Associate Director, is a mediator, facilitator, and trainer passionate about helping Delawareans navigate difficult conversations and work together effectively.
Did you know that IPAs staff members are just as diverse and interesting as our many areas of expertise? On #MeetUsMondays, well feature a different member of our team in the hopes that you can get to know us better. To kick things off, lets meet Kathy Murphy, who has worked with IPA for more than 25 years. We asked Kathy five questions, read on for her answers!
Im Kathy Murphy, the Associate Director of the Institute for Public Administration and Coordinator of the Conflict Resolution Program. In addition to my administrative duties, Im a mediator, facilitator, and trainer passionate about helping Delawareans navigate difficult conversations and work together effectively.
I am working with the CRP staff and students to move some of our in-person services to online services. Examples of this include adapting Delawares special education mediation program, which has always been done in person, to an online Zoom mediation program. We are also developing webinars to replace our face-to-face trainings; our most recent initiative is creating podcasts that feature our work and that of other dispute resolution practitioners.
I am working from my home office, which is on the outskirts of Newark. I am fortunate to live near several county and state parks, which are absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The walking paths at the parks have become my home away from home and a place to rejuvenate my mind, body, and spirit.
I do this work because I love it. It is very rewarding to help others deal with difficult situations in a positive and constructive way. As a trainer, I teach people to manage personal and professional conflicts. As facilitator, I create processes that assist groups to work together better and accomplish their goals effectively and efficiently. As a mediator, I act as an impartial third party to assist disputing parties to address their difference through respectful and productive dialogue. In all of these roles, my job is to empower individuals to speak for themselves and make decisions in their own best interest.
I am exercising, gardening, reading, traveling, cooking, baking, painting, or spending time with family and friends (six feet apart, of course).
Stay tuned for next week!
