Webinar: Mediator Advice: Is It Ever Appropriate?

$47.00

In this webinar, Gary Friedman and Catherine Conner will investigate the question of whether mediators should ever give advice and if so, under what conditions.  In our model, we emphasize the centrality of the parties’ decision making authority instead of using our position and power as a neutral to control the outcome. Running afoul of this ground rule is a major challenge when we come up against our impulse to tell the parties what we know they ought to do. How can we preserve the value of our knowledge and advice for the parties while honoring our ground rule?
