In this inaugural episode of the Mediation Minute, host Rebecca Wisbar is joined by Vincent Fornias. Vince, who has been a part of well over 3,400 mediations, shares his expertise and experience on what factors into a successful mediation, as well as the behaviors that are least conducive for success. Vince also examines how to balance the negotiation of a mediation with the human element, and how to avoid the process seeming like merely a "number trading" exercise. Rebecca Wisbar is an attorney and mediator in Louisiana. Visit TheMediationMinute.com for more information.
