Clients want guidance from the beginning

In many cases, clients have never participated in the mediation process before. They don’t have an overview of expectations, which commonly reflects in standards questions that dominate consultation. It is good for the mediator to answer the standard questions basing on default understanding instead of burdening the clients to answer. Answering questions on behalf of clients will make them comfortable and at ease. By doing this, you will also be established as a trusted professional.
