Expanding Leadership Capacity in Mediators

with Erica Ariel Fox

If a mediation is a group dynamic, then the mediator is the leader. As leaders, mediators need to dig deep inside of themselves to manage organizational disruption, institutional flux, and pain. This workshop is a practice environment for mediators, as well as others who head projects or teams, to work in the context of organizational leaders and increase their capacity to lead.

Working with real situations from the participants’ own experiences, you will return with insights and tools about how to move ahead on your own challenges. Exercises will build aptitude for assertiveness and constructive confrontation, influence skills, empathy and dialogue, and tools to foster alignment and consensus in resolving conflict.

At a deeper level, the workshop also teaches participants how to hold center in an environment full of stress, egos, fear and rapid change. We will foster qualities of character like presence and balance which are essential for mediators today.

This experience also offers leaders a moment to step back with colleagues to reflect and to take refuge from the storm.
