In my previous blogs, I set forth the traits that THE MEDIATION EXPERTS are known for. The first trait was Calm and Patient. The second trait was Positive.
In this blog, I will address the third trait:
2. REFLECTIVE –In mediation, the mediator provides the parties with a thoughtful and self-reflective process for the parties to achieve their goals at mediation. The mediator in a calm, empathetic and thoughtful way reflects back to a party what they have said in a summary and acknowledgment of the experience of the party. This is done in a way in which the party feels empowered and willing to move forward toward the goal of resolution. As a result, almost 9 out of 10 mediations by THE MEDIATION EXPERTS reach resolution.
