Mediation Ground Rules

In order to facilitate an agreement, we ask that you: 

  1. Be courteous, and allow others to complete what they are saying. Only one person should speak at a time. 

  2. Focus on future actions rather than past events. 

  3. Ask for a break if you need one. 

  4. Allow the mediator to direct the flow of the mediation. 

  5. Remember that the mediator is impartial. 

  6. Be open to creative solutions.
