THIS CASE IS A NUTSHELL

  • 2 Months Ago One Party Borrowed $5,000 from The Other Party (a Cousin) to Pay Her Back Rent. Otherwise, She Would Be Evicted
  • Both Parties Had Agreed Verbally That The Loan Could Be Repaid in Monthly Installments Over a Period of 6-12 Months
  • So Far, No Money Has Been Paid Back
  • In the Meantime, Something Else Has Happened “Behind the Scenes”

LESSONS LEARNED (Discussed During the Debriefing Session)

  • How to Best Handle Private Sessions, in Order to Minimize the Anxiety of the Party Waiting Outside the Online Mediation Room
  • The Mediator’s Challenge of Connecting With the Parties When They Have Opposite Personalities
  • Time Management – The Risk of Trying to Address Too Many Issues Within a 1-hour Mediation
