Mediation helps to provide win-win solutions to conflicts, either in business, the workplace, or families. Even in the most entrenched disputes, there is not simply a single pie over whose slices everyone is competing. Rather, parties to a conflict simply have differing goals, and mediation helps the parties to collaborate to see that all of those goals are met in so far as possible, while compromising when they are not.
Fundamentally, solutions are best generated by those who are a part of a conflict themselves. Mediation helps parties to a conflict to work together to generate those solutions, both resolving the current dispute, and ultimately improving their relationship and ability to work together for when future disputes might arise.
