There is, however, a part of the experience that I want to address in this blog that sometimes occurs and it is the feeling that comes on the day after the mediation. I call it the “mediation hangover” but it is not a real hangover, more second thoughts or reservations about what happened the day before.
Not all mediators have the same style in conducting a mediation. There is no set mediator formula that is followed by all. The mediator’s personality and background are very much part of the style. That should be no surprise to students of human nature but to someone unfamiliar with the mediation process it might come as a bit of a shock to learn that the mediator's style during the mediation greatly affects the likelihood of success. This particular blog will focus on several of the different mediator styles and how they might affect the outcome.
