Using ODR Across Cultures: Best and Worst Practices (29 replies)


Here's a snippet of why we really enjoy Brad Heckman's Blog:

Brad Heckman- While we don't measure our success in terms of whether an agreement has been reached, we hope our clients leave feeling better than when they came in.  Not this time.  The session ended with more hostility, rancor, and name calling than it began with.  My colleague felt she had conducted an anti-mediation and had only fanned the flames...and not atypically, blamed herself for not being able to elicit a better understanding between the parties.
