TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CREATIVE MEDIATORS
Creative mediators often do some of the most unconventional things, even while maintaining the integrity of the process. I’ve broken many of the traditional rules during mediations. I’ve brought food to mediations. I’ve held a mediation in my living room and at a McDonald’s. I’ve gone on a “field trip” during a mediation, joined the parties for lunch during the mediation, and, of course, doodled.
I’m always interested to hear how others have creatively facilitated productive mediations. Got a war story? Broken out of the box a few times? Sure you have.
