It happens, an employee stomps in your office and wants you to fix their problem with a co-worker. Being a good and responsive leader you agree to help and within an hour your world comes apart. Enter, the unintentional mediator, YOU!

The term “mediation” broadly refers to any instance in which a third party helps others reach agreement. More specifically, mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that “ordinary” negotiation lacks. The mediator acts as a neutral third party and facilitates rather than directs the process.

Use the seven steps of mediation

Set the stage for a productive session
