Mediation: Grit as an essential component to success at mediation

| May 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

This is a short video from Ted.com which talks about a necessary ingredient for success. As any successful person knows, there are many failures on the way to success. Unfortunately, many quit before they can achieve their goal(s). This is also true in mediation. I have seen many instances in which parties have quit before really making a hard push toward resolution. As a mediator, I see it as my job to help parties renew their resolve and to push forward, regardless of how difficult the mediaiton process may seem. I do this by asking tough questions and making sure that the parties are making informed decisions based on examining the problem from many angles. If you are interested in learning more about how persistence, determination, and grit can help you succeed in mediation, settlement negotiations, and in life, take a look at the video below and check out the book Mindset, by Carol Dweck, Ph.D. who has done some pioneering research in this field.
