Effective Mediation Part 3 - Overcoming Unrecognized Emotions in Mediating Commercial Disputes (06/01/2020)

Program Number: 3021 Presenter: Leslie Berkoff, Esq., Elizabeth Shampnoi

Emotions are not relegated to personally identifiable disputes, such as employment, personal injury or matrimonial. Oftentimes, the parties to a commercial dispute are harboring unrecognized emotions arising from the dynamics of the events leading up to the dispute, the interactions between the parties as well as the impact of the subject matter of the dispute at hand. Failing to identify and recognize these emotions impedes the ability of the parties to address them in a way that allows the parties to focus on the overarching business dispute. By recognizing and addressing emotions, the parties can move towards a more level playing field of negotiation and adequately address the dispute between them. As long as these emotions remain unnamed and unmanaged, getting to "yes" or some form of resolution may be impossible. This program will explore the means to identify and recognize emotions in commercial disputes, and provide tools to foster

Effective Mediation Part 2 – The Art of the Opening Statement - What Should go into it and Should Your Client Speak (03/09/2020)

Program Number: 3020 Presenter: Leslie Berkoff, Esq., Elizabeth Shampnoi

Mediation requires different advocacy skills than litigation; such differences are highlighted in a mediation opening statement. A poorly prepared, adversarial opening statement can derail or even terminate a mediation before the discussion has even begun. However, a conciliatory and settlement focused opening statement geared towards collaboration and understanding sets the appropriate tone for the negotiations and mentally prepares all sides for reaching an agreement. Mediation opening statements require forethought and practice, with a conscious regard of tone, body language, and word choice, they should not be discounted as an important tool in the toolkit of a successful mediation. This program will explore the differences between opening statements in mediation and litigation; when mediation opening statements should be utilized; who should speak (i.e. client and/or advocate or both) and how to prepare a mediation opening statement strategically in order to advance your goals. The program aims to help advocates
