Mediation is an informal process in which a neutral, trained, third-party helps groups or people who are in conflict to find a "middle ground" in which they may work together to find solutions upon which both parties can agree.
Mediation skills are used in a wide range of professional settings, both formally and informally. Careers in the helping professions have long seen these skills as important. Today, management professionals are increasingly recognizing these competencies as crucial to success.
Research indicates at approximately 40 percent of supervisors and managers' time is spent in dealing with conflict, making these skills relevant across all disciplines. The interpersonal competencies involved in learning to identify key issues and help people in conflict establish successful resolution to problems are sought by employers of college graduates. Graduates who have sought this type of education and can demonstrate the skills will have enhanced strengths in competitive settings.
