The workplace mediator’s cheat sheet

Keen to learn more about mediation skills that can help you to diffuse arguments between colleagues and make you an indispensable conflict resolver in the workplace? Loong Seng Onn, executive director at Singapore Mediation Centre, identifies two principles of mediation.

Mediation is a voluntary process in which the parties to a dispute engage the assistance of a neutral third party (called the mediator), to facilitate negotiations between them with a view to resolving their differences amicably.

Principle 1: Setting fair criteria for settlement

After suicides, nonprofit giving peer mediation training to Livingston schools

The Livingston community was hit hard earlier this year.

Folks were left reeling from the suicide deaths of two teenagers and two adults within weeks of one another.

In response to that crisis, a grassroots effort called the #WeWillListen campaign began to educate the community on all the resources in Park County to help with mental health.

“We realized that most of the people who might have the need to call because of mental health issues are not quite sure who to call,” said Seabring Davis, who owns Chico Hot Springs along with her husband, and helped start the campaign with Rib and Chop House managers Ryan and Taylor Sones.

The campaign has put up billboards and signage around Livingston, in and outside of the schools, with the #WeWillListen logo and the phone number to the National Suicide Hotline.

Violent Extremism & Human Rights: A Path to Prevention

destroyed hospitalCoupling Rights with Security in the Campaign Against Terrorism

From Orlando to Brussels to Baghdad to Jakarta, few regions of the world have been spared the violence generated by those who see value, meaning and opportunity in joining and supporting groups like ISIS. There is growing international resolve to develop joint and sustainable ways to address the transnational threat of violent extremism. Notably, human rights are increasingly seen as critical and pragmatic components—as part of the solution, not an objective that must either be accommodated or a separate line of effort.

Counterterrorism strategy traditionally has been the purview of national governments who have laid claim to both defining what constitutes a security threat and determining how best to mitigate it. As the nature and scope of this current wave of political violence has evolved and spread beyond borders, however, the international community is increasingly leveraging its influence and collective voice against this threat. In January, for example, the United Nations released its Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism to call for concerted action.

“Countries where terror attacks are concentrated are highly correlated with those where the state commits gross human rights abuses.”

The discourse on responses to terrorism and violent extremism, especially in the past decade, has often revolved around the need to “balance” rights and security.
