Pre-mediation/conflict coaching is a specialised 1-on-1 program designed to put you in the best position to mediate well during your FDR session. It is offered to both parties but is optional. The session would:
- help you define the issues that need attention and clarify where they have come from.
- develop ideas and strategies for negotiation and alert you to the need to gather appropriate information about a subject before the mediation.
- give you strategies to keep you focussed on obtaining the best possible outcomes in your mediation.
- give you communication strategies to use during the mediation to ensure you can both listen well to the other person, and explain yourself clearly during the mediation.
Sessions are completely confidential and private, quite apart from the initial interview with your FDR mediator and cost $150ph.
