Success as a Mediator For Dummies®

Many individuals and businesses try to avoid litigation, which can involve lengthy delays, high costs, unwanted publicity, and ill will. Arbitration and other alternatives to litigation such as mediation are usually faster, less expensive, and more conclusive, spurring demand for the services of mediators.

Effective mediators must possess unique skills that allow them to take control of animated situations, offer advice, and facilitate discussion, all the while remaining neutral without formulating biased judgment.  Success as a Mediator For Dummies® (Wiley, 978-1-1180-9522-5, May 2012) provides a timely resource for all practicing and aspiring mediators who want to reach the pinnacle of success in their practice.

The book teaches aspiring mediators the importance of upholding an honorable reputation; the skills, personality traits, and characteristics of a good mediator; and how to effectively market a successful mediation career.

Discover how to:

  • Take the steps necessary to become a mediator (education, training, licensing, states-specific requirements, etc.)
  • Employ the strategies and techniques of master mediators to effectively manage the mediation process from start to finish, with the goal of satisfying both parties' interests
  • Set up a successful private practice, set rates and fees, and market services effectively
  • Flourish as a mediator in a law firm, corporation, school, or non-profit organization
