  • About Possibility Mediation

    Possibility Mediation takes a different approach. Rather than remaining in the limited assumptions of the current problem space, a Possibility Mediator takes all stakeholders and the current circumstances into a space originating within a different context. (http://setcontext.mystrikingly.com) This can change everything.


    What one encounters in the new space is a refined set of distinctions opening up new clarity and new possibility so that new offers can be made, more complete communications can occur, and a richer outcome can be generated for all parties concerned.


    Possibility Mediation uses tools, maps, distinctions, and processes from Possibility Psychology (http://possibilitypsychology.org), Possibility Coaching (http://possibilitycoaching.org), and Possibility Management (http://possibilitymanagement.org).


    Traditional Mediation is generally understood to include 6 essential steps. These are:

    1. The Introduction.
    2. The statement of the problem.
    3. Information gathering.
    4. Identification of the problems.
    5. Bargaining.
    6. Settlement.
    • establishment of ground rules framing the boundaries of mediation
    • parties detail their stories
    • identification of issues
    • identify options
    • discuss and analyze solutions
    • adjust and refine proposed solutions
    • record agreement in writing


    From the standard, linear, and logical perspective, these seem to be all that is needed or wanted.

    But think about when Traditional Mediation procedure was developed.



    it is all about negotiating relationships and possibilities
