Mediation is not debating. It does not require you to prove that you are right and the other person is wrong or convince her/him to give up what s/he thinks is important. Unlike debating, mediation is not intended to have a “win-lose” outcome. In fact, it is often the failure of “debating” that leads people to seek the help of mediators!

Mediation is not capable of changing anyone's personality or values.

Unlike the justice system, the mediation process is not intended to find fault, assign blame, or punish anyone.

Finally, mediation is not something people are likely to do successfully if they are mandated to participate in it against their will. It needs to be voluntary.

WHAT MEDIATORS DON’T DO . . .

Mediator(s) do not:

Make decisions for you and/or the other person about how your dispute will be resolved.
Talk with others without your permission about how the mediation went. This also includes your boss and/or other stakeholders. Even people who refer you to mediation do not hear from the mediator about how the mediation went, who said what in the mediation, etc.
Determine who is “right” or “wrong.” There is no value in trying to persuade the mediator of the "merits of your case."
