One of the great perks of working through a conflict through mediation is the ability to take a break.
When the subject matter gets tough and the emotions run high, mediation allows for an intermission. Quite literally, I will in the middle (“inter”) of the process (“mission” = resolving the conflict) take a step away. Sometimes it is a five minute break during a session; other times it’s a few weeks away from the mediation room.
Unlike litigating a conflict, where there are court calendars to which the parties are beholden, mediation works on the schedule of the clients.
It is just one more way that mediation fits the client, not the mediator’s calendar.
If you have the goal of resolving your conflict, but don’t want to rush to a remedy, call us. I’m in no rush either.
