To coin a phrase, the right question at the wrong time is the wrong question. Rights and wrongs may not sit comfortably in the mediator’s lexicon but nevertheless, many would agree that the difference between a good question and a great one comes down to timing. In years of coaching and assessing mediators, one thing I’ve observed time and again is careful questioning in careless sequence, with the result that much of the potential impact is lost. In this 1.5 hour workshop, we’ll focus closely on some pressure points in mediation – especially in agenda setting and private sessions – where subtleties of timing can really change the game.
The workshop is pitched mainly at new and developing mediators who are confident in their grasp of the process and looking for opportunities to further refine their practice.
