Mediators assume certain demeanors in their role as mediators. Mediators can offer themselves as facilitators, benefactors, directive, evaluative or assume a special persona. Mediators usually have a general or default strategy as they go into a mediation. However, often, after listening and connecting with the parties, mediators will make strategic shifts from their default or planned strategy and can choose from a wide array of mediation strategies to maintain momentum in the process.
This 90-minute workshop will review the range of strategic options that a mediator may decide to utilize. Within the available time of the workshop, the presenter and participants will explore as many of the options as possible together.
