Learn the essential skills in the seminar, then watch as the mediator demonstrates how to redirect the parties from blaming and arguing over past behavior. Using empathy, respect and neutrality, the mediator successfully shifts their focus away from emotional complaints, tears, outbursts, and rigid positions and into proposals, agreements and problem solving.
