If you’re looking for a different kind of training experience, you’ve come to the right place!
No talking heads, fluff, canned presentations, or PowerPoint snoozers can be found here.
Mr. Kim Kristensen, Warrior Mediator, is focused on providing interactive, engaging, and effective sessions. These are not only enjoyable, but also extremely effective at producing memorable, useful, customized, and practical tools & tips designed to foster better communications, productivity, and cooperation. Since everyone in the room (or on the screen) participates in the conversations and activities, attendees are able to more easily implement what they’ve learned.
We use experience plus evidence-based processes proven effective as tactics to reduce and resolve conflicts at work, and in life. Participants are always a part of the program. This includes practical and entertaining activities that allow them to practice skills in real-time and get immediate feedback.
For organizations: Our approach, which includes direction from you before we even start any training, is unique because we customize each and every training to your specific needs. Too many of us have experienced "seagull trainers" swoop in and do their usual routine (fly around making a lot of noise and then fly out), with little impact. Our customized approach helps target problem/opportunity areas for real change.

As a manager, he has hired, trained, and coached numerous employees, and, on rare occasions, had to fire employees. He has worked for nonprofits, government, private businesses, and for himself.

Don’t come here if your goal is to find a coach who only makes you feel better staying right where you are now, doing exactly what you have been doing.
If you’re looking for someone who is compassionate yet relentlessly focused on encouraging you to be your best self, I can probably help.
My approach is eclectic. I bring in a variety of skills gained from years of experience. This includes a variety of training skills, lessons learned from numerous workshops, many years of experience as a manager and leader, a master’s degree in Social Sciences/Psychology, and years of experience as a Certified Mediator.
My bachelor’s degree is in Management and Human Resources, and I teach at the university level as an adjunct faculty. In addition, I studied Adult Education, Organizational Behavior, Management & Leadership, and Computer Electronics.
Yes, I changed majors a number of times.
I also draw from past work with shamans, going on vision quests, leading men's groups, emotional process work, numerous personal development workshops, and digging deep into somatic (body-oriented) work.
Sure, I can reflect on an interesting life for ideas to help you through challenges, including time spent in the circus training animals, doing acrobatics on galloping horses, and flying through the air without a net.
However, I’m most dedicated to continuous learning. That means when I find something new that’s appropriate for you, I’ll introduce it to you.
Another priority is staying on top of discoveries and developments to gather ideas that make me a better coach.
