"112 Ways to Succeed in Any Negotiation or Mediation" Steve G. Mehta

I just received Steve G. Mehta's new published book in the mail today "112 Ways to Succeed in Any Negotiation or Mediation"- Secrets from a Professional Mediator.

I am looking forward on soaking my eyes into the pages and feel the impact of having my negotiating skills turbo-charged. Like, I am not turbo-charged enough already. The difficult part is pulling myself away from my laptop and blackberry. "I can do it"

As I progress into the chapters, I will post my thoughts and… Continue

Monday Marketing Minute

Hello LA Mediators

As president, and a new blawgger, I thought that I would start each Monday with a marketing minute. This will be an ongoing start of a discussion relevant to the professional mediator. I hope and encourage everyone not only to take a minute on Monday to read, but also to chime in with your reaction, thoughts, and input on what works for you.

Today, to begin, I think some nuts and bolts is a good starting point. So, let's talk Database...yes, I can feel… Continue

Mediation Matters-The Importance of Evidence in Mediations; Wendy W. Kramer, Esq., Mediator/Arbitrator

Attorneys and parties often arrive at a mediation hearing carrying the "Jenny Craig" version of their file; their discovery volumes and boxes having been left behind in their offices. They tote along an invisible box of evidentiary material which they will ask the mediator to convey with force to their opponent (and which they insist with passion and emotion) will destroy, demolish or otherwise impede the other side's case. Some probing into the existence and merits of this evidence is well… Continue

"Waiting for No" and Other Ineffective Bargaining Strategies

Notes from the Front Line

“Waiting for No” and Other Ineffective Bargaining Strategies

by: Glenn M. Gottlieb, Esq., Attorney-Mediator

One of the most valuable roles an effective mediator can play is that of “educator.” Parties caught up in a dispute – hardened in their adversarial positions – naturally tend to retreat to “safe” ideas and “tried and true” strategies. Unfortunately, to paraphrase Will Rogers, “It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble;… Continue

Mark Ameli "A Primer on Cross Cultural Dispute Resolution"

A Primer on Cross Cultural Dispute Resolution

Why is it so difficult for a litigator to bring matters to a resolution? Even very successful litigators

may not be able to resolve their cases amicably while a mediator can do so in a short time. As a

litigator for many years and after discussions with other litigators regarding alternative dispute

resolution I have been able to discover certain… 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
