Mediation is a means by which the Parties arrive at their own settlement of a dispute which has already arisen. The Mediator acts as a facilitator, not as a dispute resolver who produces a decision. It is suitable for large and small disputes. It is flexible and need not take long. A Mediation meeting can take only a day. As well as being on the ICE’s list, John is also on the Resolex List of Mediators http://www.resolex.com/cpim_az.php?id=20.
John has recently been carrying out a mediation between a consultancy form and its client. Mediation skills are very helpful when serving on Dispute Boards and Dispute Adjudication Boards.
