Most people think they only have three choices when a conflict arises in their life
whether it is at home, work, or leisure: they can try to work the problem out
themselves, go to court, or give up and give in.
Now there is a first and best option----Mediation.
Mediation is a process where the disputing parties meet with an impartial Mediator
so they can come to a settlement that both sides can live with. Usually the parties
meet face-to-face so they can define the important issues and understand each
other's positions. The role of the Mediator is to guide them through the confidential
process so each of them experiences a positive outcome.
Mediation does more than just resolve the disputes. It educates all parties so
they can take what they have learned through the process and use it to deal
with conflict in their daily lives. Historically, disputes submitted to professional
mediation services have an 80% settlement rate. When a judge or court issues a
decision, the dispute is resolved; however the damaged relationship between the two
parties may linger on for a long period of time.
