We’ve talked about preparation on the Mediation Minute, now Katherine Loos joins Rebecca Wisbar to discuss "personality." We hear about the importance of minimizing surprises, being prepared, and how assessing the personality of a mediator can lead to negotiation success. Katherine also explains how to understand the influence of key people (like family members) on the mediation process, and how to use those influences to help rather than hinder the process.
