Does Mediation Work?

Yes..... but there is a catch..... only if you both want it to work!!!!

Life has a habit of giving you what you want and desire rules the world and convincing someone to do something they don't want to do is virtually impossible.

How to approach mediation and get what you want from your ex partner.

1. Do not criticise them

2. Use sincere praise - very difficult I know but....

3. Communicate and this means listening more than talking

4. The art of persuasion is simple..... make the other party feel that you genuinely care about them and that you want what is best for them. Work together to achieve a successful joint solution.

I am not good at applying this art but Lincoln was fantastic at it. Copy him not me!!!!
