You have made the decision that mediating would be a more cost effective and timely route for resolution.
When both parties in a dispute agree to mediate that’s great.
But for many people that’s where they hit an impasse. What do you do next? How do you approach the other party? What do you say?
In such scenarios I offer the following three services which assist in raising the suggestion of mediation with the other party.
These options do not guarantee a party will mediate and do not guarantee the other party will respond. What they do provide is a
structured way to approach the subject in what are often difficult or unknown circumstances. The three options are outlined below.
If you have any questions please contact me here.
I provide you with a template letter suggesting mediation, outlining details and updated to reflect your dispute. The letter would be reviewed by you and I before you send in YOUR name.
I provide you with a template letter suggesting mediation, outlining details and updated to reflect your dispute. The letter would be reviewed by you and I before I send in MY name (sent 2 weeks after Option A letter, if applicable).
Email from me to other party following up letter (sent 2 weeks after Option A and / or Option B, if applicable) PLUS two phone calls from me to other party (one week after email and calls placed 3 days apart).
- The most popular approach Is Option A then Option B then Option C but you may choose whichever option you wish to.---------------------------------------_----------
- The above options do not guarantee a reply or mediation with the other party, they are simply suggested approaches to aid approaching the other party suggesting mediation.
