Anthony's approach to mediation is flexible to meet the parties' needs. He is both as facilitative and an evaluative mediator as necessary to meet the needs of the parties. Specifically, Anthony practices mediation through understanding. This, as taught at Harvard, allows for great transparency for the parties. This is where the ability to embrace and manage conflict is key as Anthony's approach seeks to immerse the parties in understanding not only their positions, but also their underlying needs and interests. This way the parties can hopefully "expand the pie" so that the range of solutions is broadened to advance their common interests. Anthony helps the parties' seek win-win solutions so that not only their positions are honored but so are their underlying needs. Anthony is comfortable in a non caucus setting as well as caucus setting. Anthony understands the reluctance of many to sit in the same room together to solve problems. Anthony also understands that in many cases the parties do need to work together in the same room with only private meetings with their own side.
