ABOUT THE COURSE -- Updated for 2013!
MEDIATE MORE: Best Practices of Profitable Mediators is a CLE-approved seminar (6 hours, including 1 ethics hour) that will enable you to MEDIATE MORE -- more effectively and more profitably. This fast-paced, highly engaging program is loaded with insights, ideas and information that will help you take your mediation practice to the next level! You will learn the skills and strategies that other mediators have used to become highly successful -- and you'll learn how you can implement the ideas into your mediation practice.
There is no pre-requisite to attend this program.
AGENDA and SEMINAR HIGHLIGHTS
8:30 am -- 4:00 pm [Check-in begins at 8:15 am]
Lunch is on your own from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm.
Note: All segments are updated for 2013!
Here are a few of the many topics we cover in this program --
Top Tips from America's Top Mediators. We'll introduce you (virtually, of course) to innovative mediators from across the United States to examine what strategies and best business practices they've used to become successful mediators! This popular segment has been updated and revised for 2013 with great new ideas that you can incorporate into your mediation practice.
Core Competencies of a Profitable Mediation Practice. What are the "common denominators" of mediators who have developed successful -- and profitable -- mediation practices? We'll identify the 7 core competencies of a profitable mediation practice. Participants will also receive a brand new tool, The Competency Assessment, which will enable you to identify the areas where you excel -- and where you can use some improvement.
Anatomy of a Mediation: 18+ Best Practices of Profitable Mediators -- Before, During and After the Mediation. Successful mediators know that there are "best practices" that should be followed in order to maximize the opportunity for success in mediation. But, every mediator is different -- and mediators have different opinions on what constitutes "best practices." In this segment, we'll learn best practices for each stage of the mediation process.
"I'll Never Hire That Mediator Again!" Career-Killing Mistakes Made by Mediators Who Should Know Better! Course facilitator Troy Smith has worked with over 2000 attorneys and other mediation consumers over the last 20 years who routinely tell him "mediation horror stories" that usually end with the statement -- "I'll never hire that mediator again!" In this session, Troy will share real-life examples of career-killing mistakes, missteps, and blunders by mediators that have led to thousands of dollars in lost revenue for otherwise competent and accomplished mediators. Don't worry: Names and a few identifying facts will be changed to protect the not-so-innocent (and to make sure the mediators in question are not recognizable to the group) -- and your practice might be changed, too, when you learn to avoid these career-killing mistakes!
Mediation Mojo: Success Defined
Several recent studies, surveys and reports have tried to identify what makes a mediator "successful." We will explore these ideas with an in-depth analysis of these recent findings to determine what they mean for you and your work as a mediator.
All of the above, plus Case Law Updates, Recent Developments and Much, Much More!
