Why Mediation Works

Conflict happens. When individuals cannot agree, relationships suffer. When co-workers won’t cooperate, productivity plummets. When strife occurs in the community, progress stalls. Mediation enables parties to enter a dialogue that is focused and productive. Mediation provides a process for positive change by diffusing emotions and exploring options in order to resolve conflict.
