Yes, I have quite a bit of it.  Part of my work is as a conflict management

I think that if you've tried twice to reach consensus without getting much
closer to it, then you would get a lot of value from bringing in a
professional facilitator.

Often when people are digging in their heels, it's because (1) there are
unspoken agendas contaminating the process, (2) the 2 sides aren't
understanding each other, (3) people are more committed to being right than
to solving the problem, and/or (4) ineffective communication skills are
being used.  If any of these is true, the implications extend beyond the
conflict at hand.
