“I was skeptical because I have been involved in mediations several times and nothing got resolved. To see what happened here today is a pleasant surprise. Thank you.”
~ Mediation Participant

“When you gave us guidelines for the day and asked us to think about what the other people here want or need, I thought, ‘I don’t even like them. What do I care what they need. (Turning to the other people present.) Now that I got to know you, I really like you!”
~ Mediation Participant

cwwThe comments above refer to a conflict that had lasted for several years.

The session consisted of seven different parties represented by fifteen people of both genders and three different ethnic groups all meeting in one room. The issues involved sharing activities on the same real estate. When the conflicts were resolved and people chose assignments to carry out specific projects, the remaining part of the day was used to do visioning about plans for the future of their organization.
