Mediation is the buzz word of conflict resolution. Reading around mediation would make it appear that if you have a conflict, a mediator, like a magician, can wave it away without a frown crossing anyone’s face.
But mediation doesn’t quite work that way. It takes hard work, and not just on the part of the mediator. The courts’ endorsement of mediation (to push cases away from the courts) is a great idea, but in doing so the courts and others involved may make mediation seem like an easy option and a sure win. Whilst mediation is usually much cheaper, more time efficient and less mentally exhausting than going to court, it does not equal an effortless path.
