As a mediator, I lead the discussion process; the content comes from you. By asking specific questions and encouraging a mutual, constructive exchange, I try to bring new momentum to the conversation, supporting you in finding new ways forward that suit everyone involved.
Maybe inspiration will come, and new ideas emerge? Maybe you can agree on the common ground and thus lay a strengthened foundation for further co-operation and the way forward? Perhaps you will find a new approach towards a solution?
Together we are not looking for compromises, but for new win-win situations. This makes a difference. Have you heard the example of the orange...?
A [mediation] can take place in English or German or a mixture of the two. During the covid pandemic times, I am happy to discuss a suitable procedure with you, e.g., talks with a protective concept (social distancing, masks, no shared utensils) or, if necessary, online via video call.
There are basically two ways to start: depending on the situation, I can start directly with a joint discussion where both parties are present, or I hold initial individual discussions. I will be happy to discuss with you which option is most suitable.
A single mediation session usually lasts 90-120 minutes. However, [mediation] can require several sessions. You define when the [mediation] ends, depending on your needs. Sometimes sufficient progress can be made in a single conversation, such that the participants feel sufficiently strong to continue on their own. Sometimes it takes several sessions, perhaps with a gap in-between. As a first point of reference, I would recommend that you plan on having about three conversations and then discuss an interim conclusion and how to proceed. Of course, I can only make recommendations: you decide whether and how you want to participate further in the discussion process.
Depending on the situation, I can call on the support of my competent and esteemed colleagues, whom I can warmly recommend for their respective areas of expertise:
