"Gender Differences in Negotiation"

 James Holbrook and Stacy Roberts

Description of Topic:   
We have all heard there are different styles and approaches to a negotiation that may stem from our training, experiences, or history of conflict.  But how often do you realize that gender may affect not only how you negotiate, but how others perceive you when you are negotiating.  As the facilitators of communication and negotiation, mediators should be cognizant of the expectations and approaches to negotiation that may be affected by the gender of the parties to mediation, as well as the gender of their attorneys.  This discussion will provide an overview of gender differences to a negotiation, specifically social expectations, inferences, presumptions, motivations and reactance, and how you can better prepare for mediation given these differences.

"Attorney Preferences When it Comes to Mediation"

Patrick Burt, Kipp & Christiansen, P.C and Gabe White, Christensen & Jensen.

   Description of Topic:

As more areas of law are required to mediate before heading to trial, either out of agreement, court order, or state law requirements, the attorneys are building their own approaches to prepare for mediation, select mediators, and how to use their mediator before and during mediation.   Straight from the attorneys, a discussion of how they prepare, how they select their mediators, what mediators do that is useful (or less useful) at mediation.
