Yaron Prywes is a conflict resolution and leadership development specialist with C Global Consulting. He has led conflict resolution trainings for civil servants and aspiring principals in cities throughout the world, including New York, Princeton, Geneva, Nairobi, and Addis Ababa. These trainings help increase participants’ ability to manage conflict productively and negotiate skillfully. Yaron also facilitated emotionally charged conversations for large groups of young adults who lost a parent to politically motivated violence in the United States, Argentina, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ireland, Israel, and Palestine, in conjunction with the organization “Tuesday’s Children.” These conversations deepened mutual understanding among participants, and resulted in concrete “peace in action” plans. Yaron frequently publishes in the leadership coaching and conflict resolution space. He co-authored an article on teaching conflict resolution workshops for the upcoming edition of The Conflict Resolution Handbook. He authored a chapter titled “Greenprints for Peacebuilding” in the book Beyond Bullets and Bombs. He also co-authored a leadership development self-help book titled The Nature of Leadership. In 2011 he received an award from the Organization Development Network for his article on the role of history in leading change. To support his work developing leaders, Yaron co-created LeaderNation, a web-based portal that deploys customized 360 degree feedback surveys. Hundreds of leaders have used the site to enhance their self-awareness and formulate action plans. A partial list of clients that Yaron has partnered with includes: KIPP:NYC, UNICEF, the International Rescue Committee, United Nations Population Fund, Beginning Administrator’s Institute, and Tuesday’s Children. Previously, Yaron was a member of Teach for America (’99) where he taught high school science in one of the most challenged schools in Oakland’s Unified School District. He received his Ph.D. in Social-Organizational Psychology from Columbia University’s Teachers College, where he conducted an empirical study on the effectiveness of a coaching technique called Goal Attainment Scaling. Recently, he joined the Center for Creative Leadership as an adjunct faculty member and coach.
