IMPASSE TIPS FOR GETTING PAST BARRIERS TO SETTLEMENT
Mediation can show results and then falter, or even slow to a halt. Impasse can happen when a party displays anger, obstructs progress, doesn’t meet disclosure deadlines, holds unrealistic hardline positions or even threatens to end the process. As Mediators, we want to maintain a balance between our commitment to the voluntary nature of mediation including the client’s right to withdraw, and our own professional instinct to settle cases. Unlocking interests will not always solve problems. Financial incompetence, lack of strong communication skills, or the difference between visual and auditory intake and processing can derail the process.
This workshop will provide tips for isolating points of tension that can disrupt mediation and techniques and strategies for managing impasse.
IMPASSE is about THE PROBLEM, not THE PEOPLE
