"By bringing conflicts out into the open and overcoming them, we develop honest, forthright, and loving relationships with ourselves and others. We turn heat into light." Robert Bramson, 'Blaming isn't changing', in Jimmy Calano & Jeff Slazman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988.

Their responsibility is simple: to provide data, facts, and information that may help the involved parties improve their understanding of the objective issues in a dispute. Mediation is a process in which a third person helps the parties in conflict to collaborate. Mediators do this by listening, asking questions, and creating a supportive and constructive environment. Arbitration rulings may be binding or voluntary. You get an answer but since the involved parties don’t participate in the solution, they may be less [...]

In our last blog post we discussed the importance and value of learning to say no! As managers, employees and humans functioning in our every day lives, saying no can be difficult. If you need further inspiration and excitement about the possibility of saying no...here are a few more anecdotes and facts. Liberate yourself!
