Even with the best intentions, as you may have come to find out, others will disagree with you. This may lead to a conflict, where the both of you feel angry, misunderstood, upset, or simply helpless. At this point, a dispute resolution meeting may need to happen.
The truth is, conflict is a natural part of human relations, and in most cases, is inevitable. When conflict arises, it doesn’t mean one party is right and the other wrong. It just means both parties are not seeing things from the perspective of the other person.
So, are you a parent having a hard time with your ex-spouse? Are you struggling to find a common ground with a close friend, family member, or neighbor? Or maybe you are one step away from taking legal action after a wrongdoing but want to avoid wasting the money and time with legal fees.
As your mediator, I can help both parties better communicate so hopefully a resolution can be achieved. Now, you will need to be open to finding solutions, instead of blaming, resenting the other party, pretending the conflict does not exist, or that they could resolve on their own. However, it is important to remember that every problem will not be able to be resolved and the parties included may wish to pursue further action at this point.
By establishing an environment of trust, safety, and honest expression, every party will feel better understood, and there’s always a chance to understand one another. I try to keep the focus on the primary concerns and hope to ensure that a solution both parties can agree upon is achieved, preventing further damage to your relationships. If a resolution is achieved, both parties will receive a written copy of their legally binding agreement.
