Mediation is a form of dispute resolution that is cost and time effective. Due to its non-adversarial approach, mediation is far less stressful then using the courts to settle disputes. The
participants retain control of the process and the outcome, allowing for greater relationship preservation.
Mediation is a dispute resolution process that is structured, sequenced and interactive. At Willow Maven Mediation Services, we have the skills needed to uncover interests, and level power structures that exist in all manners of disputes. Services are confidential and Client-Centered.
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
MOVING FUTURES FORWARD
MOVING FUTURES FORWARD
Disputes happen in life and sometimes they can be difficult to resolve on your own. Without a resolution, relationships can be damaged, which can have a devastating effect for families. For a business, an unresolved dispute can mean financial loss and damage to your reputation. Going to court to resolve issues can take a long time and cost a lot of money. The ability to get to the root of the dispute rarely happens through the court system, meaning disputes can carry-on even after court is over.
At Willow Maven Mediation Services, we are experts at getting to the heart of the matter. We uncover what is important to the parties, so that the resolution is one that all parties can be comfortable with.
Mediation is confidential and voluntary. We work to neutralize power structures, creating the security the parties need to participate with confidence.
If you are in business and need training for your staff to manage conflict in the workplace, give us a call. Our training is interactive, dynamic, and participants have shared that they find it memorable and immediately useful on the job.
