Do you have a dispute to resolve or a decision or deal to make? The Services I provide can facilitate you in making optimal decisions that serve you well in these areas. People are generally not taught decision-making skills, except through observation and trial and error, and yet they often make complex decisions without such skills.
My Services include Dispute Resolution Analysis, Negotiation, and Mediation. Dispute resolution analysis is part of the preparation and process in both Negotiation and Mediation, and is offered as a standalone service to facilitate preparing to resolve a dispute or to make a decision or deal, since sound decision-making skills are the foundation for success. Mediation also includes negotiation as part of its process.
Dispute Resolution Services are processes that parties use to resolve their dispute, and can also be alternatives to having a court, whether by judge or jury, or other third parties, resolve their dispute. Dispute resolution processes such as Negotiation and Mediation are appealing alternatives to arbitration and litigation due to their more consensual and less adversarial nature that gives parties more control over their process and/or outcome, their tendency to preserve rather than destroy relationships, their ability to be customized to the parties, and their likelihood of costing parties less time, energy and resources.
Negotiation and Mediation are also appealing complements to arbitration and litigation, both for the above reasons and because, during Negotiation or Mediation, parties can gauge whether their dispute resolution process is likely to succeed or whether another process is more viable. Both are decision-making and problem-solving processes that enable parties to communicate efficiently and effectively to better understand themselves, each other, and their respective positions, interests, objectives, alternatives, priorities, risks, and potential consequences. This communication and clarity also better prepare the parties should they later decide to use a different process, and agreeing to participate in Negotiation or Mediation alone can be an empowering step towards a peaceful resolution.
