Me: Good morning!
Party: I ain't signin' nothin!
(3 hours later)
Party: This has undone years of conflict and disagreements.
Lawyer: I would have bet anything this couldn't be done.
There are 3 broad types of mediations: 1. Those where a future relationship (to be defined) is a must, 2. Where a future relationship is a possibility, and 3. Regardless of any future relationship. I love to see people's personal empowerment ignite in an evolutionary nature.
Neurochemical studies support the techniques I employ successfully, even if we don't always understand how the parts add up to something greater than the whole. Unless you like me, spend everyday practicing, learning, and thinking about the art & science of conflict engagement, I highly recommend you keep an open mind. Oh, I do the whole closed-minded thing all the time, but it just takes longer.
Maybe, I should make the mediation free and charge by the insult. Hmmm. Insults are huge time wasters, and they mostly speak about who makes them.
When adversaries (conflict-partners) begin to get curious, some amazing things happen.
Cognitive biases begin to break down:
We can begin to move from positional bargaining to interest-based problem solving. In the best cases, the overarching strategy evolves from adversarial to collaborative, and a new truth begins to come into existence.
200% Happens when each side gets what they want through interest-based problem solving.
No need to meet an adversary
