NEW BOOK - Conflict Mastery: Questions to Guide You

Give Thanks message spelling in letters hanging from pegs on a line for Thanksgiving greeting in autumn colors.

 skills I learned that help me not only at the mediation table … but in everyday life too.

This list was derived from a video created by John Ford on the HR Mediator Channel. Thank-you, John, for your insightfulness.

  1. Be Your Real Self – To me, this means to be the best person you can be … in all situations.
  2. Be Relaxed and Calm – My life can be so hectic, but I always arrive at a mediation early, and leave the craziness at the door. It’s what I try to do when sitting down at the dinner table too.
  3. Be Open to Subtle Information and Feedback –  I can’t tell you how many cues I have received from people that they have never said out loud...
