Great article! or articles rather, I very much recommend reading the first part of these 2 articles as well. It's so useful for business owners and managers (and pretty much everyone) to have some idea of where to turn if a dispute or conflict becomes unmanageable.

What an inspirational story! I can see how important it is for clients to be able to express themselves (and feel that they were heard) can really help them cope with resentment. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing Rebecca.

A great article Rebecca. I had lunch today with some of my social media contacts and the subject of litigation came up. The clear consensus around the table was that if a matter reaches court it has to be seen as a failure of all parties. In most of the contracts we enter into we now stipulate that mediation has to be a part of any dispute resolution, not just for the reasons you outline above but it comes back to that core feature....respect!
