Using Questions for Enlightenment
by Andre Oosthuizen
It has frequently been said that negotiation is not an act of war, but a journey of discovery.

Fundamental Attribution Error as a Contribution in Motor Vehicle Accidents
by Bruce Ally
In our time pressured society in North America, most people feel that they are on a treadmill running as quickly as they can to keep up with the demands placed on them.

Shovel 6 - The Real Role Play
Paul Rajkowski
There is an old proverb, “The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trial.” Who knows who authored it, what is important is this quote applies to the traditional mediation effort.

Mediator Mugs Breaking Out!
