Managing Negotiations in Mediation

When negotiators are mismanaging their negotiation, and the end of the mediation is coming near, what techniques can we try? This presentation will look at techniques mediators can use to manage difficult negotiations, counterproductive negotiation tactics advocates or parties may employ, or circumstances that invite the mediator to act beyond our neutral role. Included are dilemmas such as overlaps, mediators put in the position of advocates or coaches, and mediating in a hybrid world

"Good Trouble” and Mediation: Where the Search for Justice Meets the Neutrality Trap  

Many of us are troubled when we try to remain neutral in the midst of unfair systems, concerned that doing so supports the status quo and disadvantages those with less power, even though we see the need for change. This presentation looks at the intersection of power, social change and conflict intervention, and the relationship between “good trouble” and mediation. We will look at the critical role of dealing with power differentials as the missing ingredient in mediation, and how to support social change in the midst of our conflict work. We will explore the “neutrality trap” and how to make our way out of the trap.
