Conflict Resolution & Negotiation
Certified Mediator – over fifteen years of conflict resolution experience.
There are many definitions one can use for mediation, I prefer to define it as a facilitated negotiation, where a neutral third party helps others to negotiate a solution to a problem that makes more sense to the parties than continuing with their dispute. As a mediator, I help the parties to search for common ground and find creative yet realistic ways to resolve their controversy.
Parties to a mediation have the opportunity to produce a solution where they can both benefit (a “win-win” solution), rather than having a solution imposed on them where there are a winner and a loser.
Mediation provides a cathartic opportunity for parties to express to the other side the way they really feel about the issue in dispute.
