"A dedicated mediator earns the parties' trust by knowing the case and case issues,
demonstrating deep understanding of the parties' interests,
zealously guarding neutrality and confidentiality and
working vigorously and creatively to explore all options
to help the parties reach a balanced meeting point.
The art and skill of mediation requires knowing how and when to push,
the use of humor, and endless patience and persistence."
