What makes a great mediator?
That’s the question we asked and the answer we discussed and debated in the most recent episode of the Cafe Mediate podcast.
Joining me were fellow New Englander Diane Levin of The Mediation Channel, London-based Amanda Bucklow of The Mediation Times, and New Yorker Jeff Thompson of Enjoy Mediation (and whose Project Bluejay is worth checking out).
Listen to the podcast at the Cafe Mediate site or get it on iTunes.
Future Cafe Mediate topics include certification, getting the best training and preparation, mediation “schools” or “styles,” getting past fear of failure, debunking persistent myths about our work, and social media best practices. Have a topic you’d like us to discuss? Leave us a comment to let us know.
Many thanks to Jeff, Amanda and Diane for engaging conversation, great spirit, and smart, collaborative thinking. I’m privileged to have colleagues like you to bounce ideas off of and spark my thinking.
