The mediators of Just Mediation, LLC, are trained in mediation for larger groups, and this leads directly into skill in meeting facilitation. In cases where having a positive outcome is important, and especially in meetings where there is a potential for conflict, facilitation of your meeting by a skilled, neutral facilitator can be a wise investment.
Leadership development workshops are available for churches and governing boards to help leaders learn to work better together, to hold more productive meetings, to develop healthier systems for dealing with disagreement, and to help leaders gain focus and vision for the future of their organization.
Just Mediation, LLC, offers a team of skilled mediators who are committed to the highest standards of professional competence. In addition to a professional level or Master’s degree, each mediator associated with Just Mediation, LLC, also has at least 100 hours of training in mediation, has specific specific subject matter knowledge (for instance divorce, elder care, church organizations or extended family and organizational systems), has worked as a professional mediator in (at least) five prior cases of the type being consulted about, and has a deep, personal commitment to Biblical principles of conflict transformation.
We focus on complex conflict which is often characterized by deeply personal decisions, long term relationships, multi-layered fact issues, multiple parties or entire organizations, and (frequently) inclusion of subject matter experts in the mediation process. In short, this is not an “ordinary” mediation practice. Because our practice is unique in its approach, in commitment to mediator professional skill, and in incorporation of subject matter experts into the process, it is not unusual for parties to travel from distant locations within South Carolina and also from other states to meet in person in Columbia, SC. Mediation services are also offered by way of Skype, for parties who find it impossible to travel or to meet in the same geographic location.
Experience and credentials of the mediator are particularly important for the complex, multi-disciplinary, multi-party mediations, and transformative style which are the hallmarks of this mediation practice. Click on the links below to learn more:
