Why Should You Attend:

All too often we get stuck in conflict (impasse) and struggle unsuccessfully to find a way out which usually just escalates the conflict even more. But it does not have to be that way! There are several tried and true options designed to help move all parties through and past impasse to a resolution. This webinar will explore a variety of those options for a variety of conflicts and especially those stuck in impasse. Regardless, of the conflict there are options this webinar will introduce to help you get beyond impasse, and to deal with and get over the conflict. Among these options are Fact Finding, Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE), Mediation, Arbitration (both Interest and rights), Med-Arb, Med-Arb- Med, Interest Based Facilitation, and various strategies for diffusing impasse such as the use of empowerment and other workplace related tools. Let’s face it, conflict even without impasse can be tough enough but with impasse we need all of the options available to make sure we get beyond it!

Should we go to mediation? What mediator should we use? Or maybe arbitration would be a better way to break the impasse? But what about using a fact-finder, or how about Early Neutral Evaluation? What to do, what to do? Conflict and especially when that conflict is stuck in impasse wastes resources and more specifically time, money, and can wear away at the focus and culture of your organization. So, it’s important to be in the “right forum for the fuss.” And the best way to do that is to know what your options are, how they work and how to use them so you can move beyond impasse and help the organization achieve its goals to be more focused and productive. Or you can just try to stare down the other party in impasse hoping they will cave!
