In mediation the goal is to amicably resolve a dispute through the efforts of all the parties. Mediators utilize people skills, persuasion, and patience, to facilitate the dialogue between the parties in order to reach settlement. Mediators do not have the authority to render decisions; the parties are not compelled to reach an agreement. Any party is free to leave the mediation at any time.
There are lots of mediation techniques. There are facilitative techniques and evaluative techniques – good mediators can go from one to the other providing a safe place for parties to resolve their disputes. Based on the mediator’s experience it is important to provide evaluative leadership. Mediators need to set the tone and help the parties take an objective look at their cases. Good mediators should be able to objectively evaluate both sides and work with the parties and their lawyers to help them honestly evaluate their cases.
Benefits of mediation include cost, confidentiality, control, compliance. Because the result is attained by the parties working together and is mutually agreeable, compliance with the mediated agreement is usually high. This further reduces costs, because the parties do not have to employ an attorney to force compliance with the agreement. The mediated agreement is, however, fully enforceable in a court of law.
