Although the majority of disputes resolve at Mediation. Nonetheless, there remain those that impasse. Failure to achieve resolution can often be avoided if advanced adequate thought is given to common potential pitfalls which include ethical issues that may arise. Learn how investing a modest amount of time in advance of a Mediation session to reflect upon the purpose, logistics and goal of the session can greatly reduce the potential for failure, and ultimately save time and money.
Participants will learn how and why these reasons can cause Mediation to fail:
- Lack of Preparation
- Unethical Conduct in Mediation
- Absence of Decision-Makers
- Wearing Trial Blinder
- Last Minute Surprises
- Emotion and Anxiety
