Our 2018 ADR Summit features one of the most exciting, entertaining and compelling mediators and mediation trainers working in the field today: Lee Jay Berman.

This all-day workshop is for mediators ready to move to the next level of awareness and consciousness, grounded in deeper connection with participants. Designed for mediators who have achieved a level of success and a respect for other mediation styles and applications, it will move them beyond the confines of evaluative and facilitative processes of mediation. It will assist them to make a difference with their work – both in the lives of their mediation participants, and in themselves. This experiential workshop will reach far beyond classic mediation training to work with the counter-intuitive.

Master Mediators see things differently, they hear things differently, and they proceed differently than other mediators. This workshop is just what mediators need who feel like their work has hit a plateau. You will practice tools which Master Mediators draw upon to allow them to function at a higher level, including deep insights in self-awareness; neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to build rapport and understanding; the psychology of conflict and manipulation; and raising your levels of perception. All of these tools allow Master Mediators to see and hear more of what’s going on in the room and provide the impact participants want when they say, “Now, go work your magic.”
