When Negotiations Breakdown
An independent, neutral, third party mediator can be effective when negotiations breakdown or the parties find themselves at an impasse. The PREMi Mediator assists the parties in brainstorming and finding commonalities which function as the basis for resolution of the dispute. A PREMi Mediator, in assisting the parties to find resolution may:
- Assist parties to see issues and facts in common as well as defining outstanding issues.
- Use a variety of techniques to overcome the parties' impasse.
- Assist parties in brainstorming possible resolutions.
- Meet separately with the parties, and have confidential discussions. Those discussions remain confidential unless the party allows the discussion to be shared with the other party.
