Trainer Tip: People struggle to come to agreement when they don’t feel heard. So as a mediator, facilitate the process by asking all parties to reflect the essence of what's important to other parties. This is critical.

Then you can brainstorm strategies that will value everyone’s needs, and are focused on what they want to happen.
