Approach

Thornton has a passion for resolving employee differences without the complications of legalities whenever possible -- and refers to legal alternatives as indispensable in successful human relations. "Legal matters can leave everyone unhappy. So try something else first." he advises. With over 25 years of experience in employee relations, problem identification, mediation, training, and consulting, his life's work is to resolve differences. And he does so by highlighting and linking common ground with desired outcomes. "These mutual relationships always exist," Thornton affirms, "even under seemingly impossible circumstances."
