A productive mediation has several key ingredients; if one or more is missing, the process will suffer.

Choosing an impartial mediator that reveres patience, persistence and perspective will put clients on the road toward resolution of any dispute. A “Listen First” philosophy is one that revolves around preparation, confidentiality, candor, mutual respect, active listening and perhaps most importantly, empowerment. The sharing of perspectives, data and points of interest are key to identifying each client’s needs and motivations. By following the “Listen First” philosophy all participants can work toward identifying issues, foster joint problem solving, and explore settlement alternatives.
