The Benefits of Mediation
Mediation is a cost-effective and efficient alternative form of dispute resolution. The process is purely voluntary. Mediation is facilitated by a neutral and impartial mediator who works with people to generate their own solutions in resolving their conflict. By choosing mediation, people can craft a resolution that best serves their interests. Mediation produces a "win-win" outcome for the people involved in the process whereas the court or arbitration systems produce a "win-loss" outcome for the parties involved in the dispute.
If managed well, conflict can lead to:
Increased understanding of issues, factors and points of view
Greater group cohesion through renewal of mutual respect and confidence in the group’s ability to work together effectively
Improved self-knowledge through examination of goals, values and focus
Openness to change and adaption
Improved trust in the process and the people involved
Informed decisions rather than the forced agreements of “group think”
Who pays for Mediation?
Typically the cost of mediation is shared equally between the parties unless the parties agree to other arrangements. Anderson Mediation fees for services are customized based on the needs of our clients. Our fees are significantly less than settling matters through arbitration or the courts.
