LIVE WEBINAR: Rekindle Your Mediation Work: Find Your Love Again with Lee Jay Berman

July 28th at 12:00PT/3:00ET 


After a certain number of years, mediators can hit a plateau.  They can feel burn-out creeping into their work.  They can hear themselves saying the same lines that they have used before.  The bigger problems from this are that they can grow shorter in patience, and simply enjoy the work less.  If a mediator's motivating goals are to keep their settlement rate high, or "at least I'm making $X,000 today", then it's time for this workshop.  In this workshop, we will help mediators find their passion again.  We will help them find new reasons to put on that suit of armor and go do another day of battle, by finding their joy, and seeing new challenges, and by seeing new things in the same, old rooms.

This workshop will take attendees through their own, inner path, examining their personal journey through mediation, leading them with questions that they will answer individually for themselves, asking them to look inward. It will also facilitate outward discussion among the attendees, brainstorming, sharing ideas, and feeling connected to one another by highlighting
their shared experiences, allowing them to bond, and to work together to find their motivations to continue differently. This workshop will result in a shift for the attendees, and a recommitment to their work and connecting it to their vision.

LIVE WEBINAR: Preventing Bad Settlement Decisions and Impasse: Using Brain Science, Game Theory, and Micro-Interventions with Doug Noll

September 22nd at 12:00PT/3:00ET 


Mediators are decision-architects. They guide counsel and party through the exploratory phase of mediation, then manage the auction, and finally help counsel and parties close the deal. Decision-making in mediation is largely an emotional process, not a rational process. In this webinar, we will explore why this is and how it manifests. You will learn the difference between rational and emotional decision-making, how to spot each type, and tailor your interventions to maximize the chance of good decisions by the participants.

Webinar: It's Time for Heavy Metal Mediation (1.5 MCLE hours)
with Lee Jay Berman


Heavy Metal Mediation means more than simply thinking outside of the box - it means smashing the box and trampling on it!  It is about recognizing the realities of the commercial marketplace for litigated cases and adapting a mediator's style and approach to meet the marketplace's expectations.  This is a short "How To" guide that gives explicit permission to mediators to do things that most mediator training courses view as taboo, including evaluating cases and being confrontational, and examines ethical questions around manipulation and intimidation.  This look under the tent of mediation is a one of a kind view into how the real world of commercial mediation works, and how the attorneys and sophisticated parties want it to work. Warning:  This approach is NOT for the transformative, relationship-minded mediators.

Webinar: Grow Your Mediation Practice Now!  
with Lee Jay Berman


So many people who proudly call themselves mediators love mediating, but don’t get an opportunity to do it enough. This webinar is for them. Many of those trying to establish a career in mediation come from prior careers in law, mental health or education. These three careers are among the weakest at marketing and self-promotion. Our industry suffers unnecessarily because so many are highly skilled at mediating, and yet lack the skills that enable them to secure the opportunity to actually mediate.

Webinar: Settle for More: Advocacy in Mediation (1.5 MCLE hours)
with Lee Jay Berman


While all good attorneys prepare intensely for arbitration or trial, it is a wonder that more fail to prepare better for mediation.  As the legal community continues to use mediation as an effective case settlement tool, it is becoming clear that attorney preparation plays a vital role in achieving a favorable result.  Whether dealing with hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, shooting from the hip is too risky.  This course will teach and discuss with panels the most successful strategies for effectively representing clients in mediation, both through the eyes of leading advocates (Invited: Richard Marks, Scott Tepper, Michelle Flores) and leading mediators, who have each seen literally thousands of attorneys represent clients with varying degrees of success.  Learn what works and what doesn't.  Learn 10 new tools for effective advocacy in mediation that will help your practice beginning the following Monday morning.
