Mediators

What Mediators Need to Instinctively Know

Can and/or Should every Mediation result in an Agreement?
 
While I hate not being able to help parties in mediation come to an agreement, the fact of the matter is that it isn’t my mediation to decide. It is the party’s mediation.
 
Every Mediation cannot and should not result in an agreement and Mediators need to become comfortable with this fact.
 
Mediators need to instinctively know:
– How to be Flexible
– When to Listen
– How to be Empathetic
– When to Push
– How to Play Devil’s Advocate
– Even when to be Directive . . . among many other things
