How serious is the dispute or conflict?

    • Losing sleep over a dispute or conflict?
    • Energy and focus is being consumed by a disagreement?
    • An issue has been dragging on for months, possibly years?
    • Avoiding face to face interactions?
    • Differences of opinion are creating a hostile environment?
    • Agreements have stalled or fallen apart? Parties are more entrenched?
    • Family fighting is affecting relationships?
Unresolved disputes and differences of opinions can lead to conflicts that negatively impact work, home, and personal environments. Left unresolved, conflict can result in:

  • unnecessary emotional stress,
  • costly health issues (stress, depression) affecting attendance and performance,
  • destroyed relationships,
  • poisoned (work) environments,
  • negative impact on others,
  • decreased moral and productivity,
  • negative impacts on revenues,
  • lost contracts, sales, or partnerships,
  • costly staff turnover and problems recruiting staff, and
  • costly litigation.

JRB Mediations resolves disputes and conflicts, efficiently, timely, and cost effectively; and is an alternative to litigation.

What is Mediation?

When parties are in dispute emotions, posturing, and negotiation strategies, can muddy the waters and stand in the way of successful negotiations, making it difficult to focus on the issues and make informed decisions. JRB Mediation services can help parties:

  • move past these obstacles
  • gain understanding and perspectives of the issues,
  • make informed decisions, and
  • achieve a successful resolution or outcome.

Mediation ( also known as conflict resolution or dispute resolution) is an alternative to costly and lengthy litigation and court battles. AND unlike court or arbitration, mediation has many benefits for disputing parties.

Benefits of Mediation:

  • quicker and significantly less costly than litigation
  • privacy and clarity in what may otherwise be a difficult negotiation or conversation,
  • control of their own outcomes, rather than a judge or arbitrator controlling it,
  • the opportunity to create an agreement that is acceptable to all parties,
  • a chance to retain an amicable relationship, and
  • a higher prospect of compliance with any mutually agreed upon decision.

Mediation provides an opportunity for disputing parties to come together to discuss their issues, negotiate mutually agreeable resolutions, and create a mediated agreement.

Not only is mediation cost effective and saves you money, it is timely, private, confidential, and provides you an opportunity to seek clarity and understanding of differing perspectives in what may otherwise be a difficult negotiation or conversation.
