In the words of Edwin Friedman, ‘The difference between a professional and a hack is not in their degree or training. Both may do what they do with polish: but the hack is not transformed by his experience.’

When it comes to mediation, it’s evident that this practice is never mechanical or habitual. What successfully worked for one set of clients might spectacularly backfire when applied to another. Mediation, in essence, is more akin to an art form than a mere technology. It requires us to be adaptable, to improvise—to decide precisely what needs to happen in this moment, with these unique individuals and this specific situation.

Mediators cannot afford to run on auto-pilot; instead, they must maintain a constant awareness. While this may be demanding, it’s also profoundly transformative. Mediation is, at its core, a form of social artistry. It beckons us to intervene skillfully, increasing the likelihood of resolution, cooperation, and peace. What we bring to this process is mirrored by what we gain from it.

Join our webinar as we delve into this creative dynamic from both angles. Discover the artistry of mediation and the potential for personal and professional growth.
