Finding a Better Way to Resolve a Business Dispute
Amidst flaring tempers, heightened emotions and conflicting views, being stuck in the middle of a business dispute can be devastating to all involved.
With 30 plus years of experience in dealing with people in difficult situations who are stuck trying to find solutions, I’ve learnt a few home truths about mediating and achieving the right solutions.
Whilst the topic of the conflict may vary, there are a number of common threads to any dispute which can make or break those involved. Any conflict or dispute undoubtedly creates uncertainty, instability and can end up being extremely costly if handled the wrong way.
Business dispute mediation is a process of negotiation between parties in a dispute. At all times, it must be managed by an unbiased, independent, and impartial voice within a confidential, structured, and personable setting. Ultimately, there are no winners whilst the state remains hostile and positions entrenched.
The concept of mediation is to provide cost effective outcomes either before or after relationships break-down. For people in this position, I provide a bridge to your solutions. I ensure a safe and respectful environment to meet and discuss the issues.
Mediation Creates 4 Key Outcomes
- Allows you to be heard equally and fairly;
- Work out which issues are important to each party, and why;
- Uncover areas of agreement and common ground, and to;
- Help the parties find solutions for the identified issues.
It’s important to remember, in a mediated outcome, the solutions are by nature, what you agree to, rather than a dictated to you – the WIN/LOSE dual.
Mediation is a voluntary process, in which the parties involved take ownership of, and are responsible for finding workable solutions to the identified issues. Whilst some solutions are better than others, and often these solutions may not be perfect, they are indeed solutions all parties can live with, and begin moving forward in their own lives.
