Approach

By training and practice, I am convinced that mediators are most effective when they focus on the process,and advance the parties ability to constructively dialogue and move toward resolution. The mediator must continue to advance his or her training and reading in the arena of negotiation. Heavy-handed mediator involvement in details of a particular resolution, which is all too common, is a practice I strongly oppose.
