Marketing your Mediation Services with your own personal Calling Card Video Blueprint

So you want to be a rock star? Well maybe not, how about rocking the cyberworld with your personal mediation video? More like it huh! Well read on...

Online video is consuming the web as we know it whether you like it or not. Some prefer text content over video in most cases, and that's okay too. I don't think text is going anywhere, but demand for video is on the rise from both consumers, and businesses looking to stay on top of their marketing. Just like not all text is great, not all… Continue

A good laugh

I just posted a short negotiation video in the video section and for those of you who would like a good laugh it is hilarious! It has some background noise but still worth it to watch.

A man negotiates with a dentist about the price of a tooth extraction. Wait for the punch line. I am still laughing !

Enjoy members!

Taming the Wolf

A few years ago, when I had the extraordinary opportunity to co-mediate settlement conferences in the LASC as part of my training at Pepperdine's Straus Institute, I noticed parties (and often attorneys) came to the process unprepared.



Considerable time and money were invested in "the fight" but almost no time was spent preparing for "the fix" (mediation). Thus, a significant portion of a settlement conference or mediation was spent getting up to speed.



As success in… Continue

Moving the Goalposts 2 - The Blowback

In my last blog post, I described, at length, my personal methodology in crafting a mediator's proposal. Today, I'm going to consider what I call the "blowback," which is the downside of the method itself. It's something that's always on my front burner whenever I'm actively involved in "moving the goalposts."



There's an important ideological divide between facilitative and evaluative mediation, and it's one that I'm not entirely comfortable with. Let's examine the relative strengths… 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
