Step 3: Reach Agreement to Mediate
Invite all of those able to affect the outcome of the dispute to participate in the mediation.
- Reluctant to mediate. If they have questions about mediation or doubts that it will work in your situation, suggest that they walk through this Three Steps to Mediation process.
- On-line workshop. If you are hesitant to raise the subject of mediation yourself, or if some of the parties want a better understanding of mediation, speak to us about arranging a free introductory live, on-line workshop on mediation from BMC for all of the parties.
- Preliminary Conflict Assessment. If you and others remain interested in mediation but are not ready to commit to the full process, you may want to commission a Preliminary Conflict Assessment from BMC for discussion among all of the players. This assessment, based on interviews with the parties and review of selected documents on the dispute, is a report and recommendation from BMC on the dispute and how best to deal with the issues.
