Large organisations and smaller workplaces are now realising that there are many benefits and very significant cost saving by early intervention of an independent and unbiased mediator. The use of conflict management tools and mediation allows individuals to gain greater insights and methods to deal with difficult negotiations and workplace issues. The use of a mediation framework in a negotiation helps to avoid protracted, unfruitful fixed bargaining positions and encourages the exploration of alternatives. We all know that in the workplace long-standing, unresolved disputes and conflict result in absenteeism, great personal and financial costs as well as highly negative impacts on team morale and performance.
