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.

Uses of Mediation

Mediation works to ease decision-making, planning, and/or conflict resolutions in many different types of organizations from the family to the community group to the workplace.

Types of discussions that lend themselves to mediation include:

Information Sharing

In this type of mediation, information is gathered and shared from all sources helping participants move forward from the same knowledge base.

To mediate effectively, individuals must participate in good faith to work toward a solution for the future. Issues such as domestic violence and child abuse may disqualify persons from participating.
