Alternatives to the high cost of CPR's newsletter

If you're like me, you have wanted for ever to take a peak inside New York based CPR's business mediation orientated newsletter, Alternatives to the High Cost of Litigation but jibbed at the high cost of the newsletter at $190 or the 'rest of the world' price tag of $256!

Ditto with CPR's website that looks good but most of its behind bars in the members only section with membership rates ranging from $3,000 - $10,000/year for a corporation depending on your size and individual membership is $1,500/year, no matter what size you are.

Don't ask me how - all I know is that this fell off the back of an expensive looking truck - take a look at this article from CPR's Alternatives; Mediating the Deal: How to Maximize Value by Enlisting A Neutral’s Help At and Around the Bargaining Table by Stephen Goldberg of Northwestern University, Evanston Ill.

While you are at CPR's site, take a peek at the latest Master Mediator piece, a periodic commentary by Pittsburgh mediator Bob Creo, the thinking mediator's friend.

In his latest offering I Mediate, Therefore I Am? Bob asks;
  • Can we transcend the task before us of settling a case?
  • Should we transcend the task before us of settling a case?
  • Can, or should we, transform ourselves in the process of settling cases?
