The “Practice direction 31” has indicated professional mediation shows a significant position in dispute resolution. The flexible and professional mediation process allows professionally qualified mediators to explore with parties the underlying interests and needs that beyond litigation positions can cover and protect. Its success relies on numerous factors, and detailed preparation work prior to mediation meetings plays a crucial role in separating disputing parties further away or bringing them together for the peaceful conflict resolution process.
Preparation is the key to a successful mediation. Mediators are often taught in courses on the foundation process and skills required in mediation meetings.
