Mediation Marketing Minute 2010: Vol. 1

I've been pondering the depth of what I consider the absolute most important ingredient in mediation. I guess it's marketing in a sense, I think it makes alot of the magic, so we're kicking off 2010 Marketing Minute with it. But let's start at the start.



Mediators have three thing they must be as mediators:



Be Present

Be Authentic

Be Of Service



That's it.



But lately the Be Present aspect of this recipe has been on my mind. I just read a… Continue

LA Mediators Feb. 10 Meeting

Happy Saturday LA Mediators...



It's a nice sunny day, and we're going to have the best year yet at LA Mediators! Thanks to everyone who came by and brought food and drink at my place.

Nothing says party like your 19 year old daughter singing a drinking song...She is class of 2012, he is class of 1961. Good to know Berkeley has it's… Continue

Uncertainty Drives Conflict Resolution

After many years of mediating litigated cases, I find that several threads continually recur. Among the most pervasive are the following:



· Attorneys believe that their analysis of the case is superior to that of their opponent

· Parties believe that the opposing party is insincere in his/her/its position

· Attorneys believe that the opposing witnesses will be surprised by certain evidence when directly confronted by it at trial

· Attorneys believe that they will be… Continue

Guest Blogger - Learn to Exercise Forgivness for Inner Strength

By Jane Hernishin



January 7, 10:43 AMLas Vegas Spiritual Pathways Examiner



The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.

~Mahatma Gandhi~



Starting off 2010 with the Virtue of Forgiveness can start a theme of healing in your life. The New Year is a time in which new beginnings are created. Reflecting back on the life lessons of 2009 and make a conscious decision to develop new habit, gain a higher level of mastery of this virtue and… Continue

Mediating Commercial and Litigated Cases with Lee Jay Berman at American Institute of Mediation

May 16, 2017 to May 20, 2017
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
