NAM neutral, Richard P. Byrne, Esq., has been invited to present a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar to Vela Insurance Services. The one hour CLE presentation entitled Inside the Mind of a Mediator: Avoiding Impasse and Maximizing Outcomes in Mediation, will be held at the company’s midtown Manhattan offices at 757 Third Avenue, 11th Floor, New York, NY on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Mr. Byrne will address how even though mediation resolves most disputes, some mediations end in impasse. Such disappointments can usually be avoided, and positive resolutions achieved, when advocates are armed with knowledge of common mediation pitfalls and develop negotiation skills that can enhance mediation outcomes. Learn how appropriate preparation, smart brief-craft, and thoughtful strategies during the mediation session — focused on the purpose, logistics and goals for the session — cannot only reduce the potential for failure, but also maximize results.
Attendees will learn the common mediation pitfalls and develop negotiation skills that can enhance mediation outcomes.
