|My approach is evaluative and directive. I am a good listener. I enjoy the mediation process. I relate well to the participants. I am able to deal with intense emotions during mediation sessions. I am not discouraged by participants who initially do not appear to want to settle their disputes. I am interactive and persistent.|
