Don’t avoid conflict.
Come to The Table.

Is your architecture firm growing so fast that it’s difficult to keep colleagues aligned?

Do you worry that your work environment could cause key employees to leave?

Are you fearful of losing valued clients, or worse, your firm’s reputation?

I’m Nora Ludviksen, and over 30 years as an architect and design executive, I’ve seen all the mistakes business leaders make. I’ve made many of them myself. And I’ve learned that avoiding workplace conflict causes small problems to grow into roadblocks that impact productivity, morale, even profitability.

Now, as a conflict coach and certified mediator, I help architects, building professionals, and other business leaders communicate better, navigate obstacles, and get everyone back to work.

Workplace Conflict

When you avoid conflict, muscle through it, or even back down to keep the peace, you miss out on important conversations that create openness, understanding, and strong work relationships.

But you can have those conversations at your firm. You can find common ground and move forward. You can manage conflict respectfully and effectively.

You have the ability. You just need an experienced guide to help show you the way.

Beyond the Workplace

We all have lives outside of the office, of course—but family conflict often impacts work performance as well as personal relationships.

If you have employees who need support with difficult issues at home, or you’re here seeking separate family services, I can help.

Meet Nora Ludviksen

I’m an architect who became a mediator and conflict coach. That might sound unusual, but it’s the ideal combination for helping architecture firms like yours understand and resolve workplace conflict.

I've been in your shoes. I’ve lived your pains and fears. I understand how you work. I’ll be your trusted advisor, someone who listens at a deep level, who sees the things you can't see.

Once I show you how to handle conflict, you’ll begin to welcome it—because it leads to individual growth and professional solutions. There’s a clear path ahead to those solutions.
And with my calm, expert guidance, I’ll help you find a new way forward.
