Areas Covered in Mediation

Dispute resolution, conflict management and ultimately mediation are an invaluable set of skills to have when you perform your day to day duties. In fact, it is these skills that will distinguish and set you apart from your colleagues.

Good personal traits to have to be well suited to work as a mediator include: neutrality, honesty, good communication skills, judgement skills, confidence and the ability to work well as a team.

Based on a recent “30 Best Careers” ranking report it was found that mediators performed very well based on pay, forecast job growth, prestige and job satisfaction. It also found that working as a solicitor / lawyer was one of the most overrated professions.
