"Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall."
Oliver Wendell Holmes.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a confidential and voluntary process that allows people to have the power to negotiate and attempt to determine the outcome of a conflict. It is an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. A neutral third party, a mediator, assists the individuals or groups in dispute to reach a mutually agreeable solution. Within the mediation process and with the help of a professional mediator, you will find clarity and understanding allowing you to decide your fate instead of someone else (a judge or jury) making a decision that may not be in your favor.
You have the ability to resolve issues without the exorbitant legal and court fees. When two or more people sit down in a neutral environment to discuss their issues and find a solution that is mutually agreeable it is empowering and satisfying. The costs to mediate are incomparably less than legal and court fees. In the end, it is a better solution to ending conflict than any other means.
Indira Gandhi said, “you can’t shake hands with a clenched fist”. Mediation allows you to unclench your fists. Although studies vary, most agree that on average 85-95% of mediations are settled out of court. Of those remaining, many settle within days or weeks prior to a scheduled court appearance. Most who experience Transformational Mediation emerge with a better understanding of effective “green” communication and conflict management skills enhancing their future professional and personal lives.
