EP 178 Choosing a Mediator Both Sides Can Trust

Mac Pierre-Louis and Natalia Olowska-Czajka of OlowskaPierre.com talk with Tye Bourdoney of CPLSPA.com to explain why a mediator can be trusted by both parties to the conflict, even if a particular mediator is indicated by the other party or this party's attorney. They are also showing how to choose a mediator yourself if you do not have a clue how to do it, showing the mediators' directory available at InstantMediations.com. Mediators are not biased and they are not there to judge any of the parties. Mediators need to be transparent to the parties of who they are and what they do in the mediation process and on top any circumstance which might raise doubt as to the mediator's neutrality and impartiality should be disclosed by the mediator at the very beginning of the mediation.  There are also safeguards in mediation to ensure that mediator can be trusted, such as its confidentiality and the fact that it is voluntary throughout the entire process.

Leadership Book Review With the Author - A Manousso Musing Interview with Rev. Tope Popoola

Rev. Tope Popoola (topepopoola.com.ng) as a guest of Dr. Manousso (manousso.us) and Natalia and Mac (OlowskaPierre.com) talks about leadership based on Rev. Tope Popoola's two books: "Lead as you go" (which is about to be published) and "Leadership is for the dead" (already available for purchase).  Out of his own experience in life and as a minister, Rev. Popoola states credible and understandable principles of leadership which are often misunderstood.  He starts with an assertion that the society blames the leaders for a lot of things -  not realizing or perhaps forgetting that the leaders themselves are the products of this very society (in Rev. Popoola's words: "The system produces the leaders after their own kind"). This shows a crucial characteristic of leadership which we need to keep in mind always - the leaders are  poisoned by the same problems that the society is - and this can be traced in the previous work and service of the leaders. So the leaders c

Peer Mediation & Student Engagement With Dr. Angela Miller

Dr. Angela Miller of mediationnikan.com in conversation with Natalia and Mac of olowskapierre.com discuss the necessity of bringing mediation skills to schools to educate children as young as 13 years of age till they are adults (8 grade till 12 grade). &nbsp;The time of adolescence is crucial when learning to resolve conflicts in an amicable manner as these are the moments when the children are appreciating of their peers' views more than those of the adults, like teachers and parents. &nbsp;Teaching mediation skills to the youngsters not only enables them to solve the conflicts by themselves but also equips them with the skills they will take outside of the classroom - like active listening, avoiding prejudice and understanding and accepting differences. It also produces the effect of calming down stressful situations in the school territory and outside of it in any peer groups leading to better anger management and improving social skills.
