‘Winning’ at Mediation: A Blueprint for Preparation

From the blog of Nancy Hudgins

I’ve been honored by Tammy Lenski with an interview that she posted today on her blog, Mediator Tech. Tammy is a leader in blogging, marketing and technology, so I was especially appreciative that she featured my new pamphlet, “Winning” at Mediation: A Blueprint for Preparation. I just published the 24-page color pamphlet in which I compiled tips for lawyers on preparing for mediations. Let me know if you’d like a copy, and be sure to send one to your favorite Northern California lawyer!

You can read the interview here. Be sure to check out Tammy’s other great blog: Conflict Zen.

I’d also like to thank fellow bloggers and mediators Geoff Sharp at Mediator blah…blah…, Chris Annunziata at CKA Mediation and Arbitration and Jim Hildreth at Real Estate Mediation for their kind words about the pamphlet. Offline, I’ve heard nice things from Vickie Pynchon at Settle It Now Negotiation Blog and Diane Levin at Mediation Channel.

My thanks to all. Mediators are warm and affirming and I enjoy hanging out with them here in the blogosphere.
