LA Mediators

Mediators of Southern California

LA Mediators is back in action for 2012, so mark your calendars for our next meeting to be held on Thursday February 23rd at 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Location: 1010 Wilshire Blvd. LA 90017. Topic will be on “Mastering Negotiation”

November’s meeting was a full house, and I expect this to be another informative packed house night too.  As always we will have food, spirits, laughs, smiles, great conversation, and plenty of mediator’s tools you can pocket to take home with you.

Look for a Ning Blast from Bob Tessier announcing the agenda and guest speakers coming soon.

Reserve your spot now by sending me an e-mail with your RSVP.

Tentative Future Meetings:  

In March, my friend, Diana Martinez a Successful Collaborative Law Mediator will be our guest speaker.  She is an active member of the Los Angeles County Superior Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Panel, a board member for the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association, and a paid IVJC family law court mediator.  She has been a guest speaker speaking on:  “Respecting Diversity: Cultural Competency in Collaborative Practice”, sponsored by Collaborative Professionals of California and “The American Quilt: A Workshop on Diversity”, sponsored by Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association, and “What Every Man & Woman Should Know About Divorce”, Riverside ongoing event.  I know you will love her and won’t want to miss this meeting either!

In April:  “Mediating the Insured Claim” hosted by Steve Weinberg and Darrell A. Forgey. The presentation will address problems encountered in mediating traditional bargaining involved in insured claims.  They will discuss techniques that will arm mediators to successfully mediate claims for money where the case is about dollars rather than relationships.  Also,
discuss methods the mediator can use to help the parties respond to roadblocks frequently encountered in traditional bargaining of insured claims such as "I am not going to negotiate against myself " or "That offer is insulting and I am not going to respond."

Before I end, I wanted to share this Brainy Quote with you..

“I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”  Steve Jobs


Another reason why you should NEVER give up!
This is going to be another successful LA Mediator’s year! I look forward to your RSVP’s and seeing everyone soon!


Much Success and remember today is a great day!  


Kym Adams

This program is a practical training course. While covering theory to give you a framework and the intellectual understanding of negotiation and mediation, this course is about learning. Our focus is on your doing, practicing and experimenting with negotiating and mediating. There is much to teach about mediation and negotiation, but one reason mediators fail is because they understand the theory, but cannot execute it when under the gun. In this course, you will mediate and negotiate your way…See More

Grow Your Mediation Practice Now! with Lee Jay Berman at American Institute of Mediation

January 28, 2017 from 9am to 4pm
We volunteer and we gripe.  We go to “networking” events, and don’t feel comfortable there or don’t know what to do.  Many of those trying to establish a career in mediation come from prior careers in law, mental health or education.  These three careers are among the weakest at marketing and self-promotion.  Our industry suffers unnecessarily because so many are highly skilled at mediating, and yet lack the skills that enable them to secure the opportunity to actually mediate.  In this course,…See More
