CKA Mediation and Arbitration Blog

I'm guessing by now most readers of this blog will be reading Georgia mediator Christopher Annunziata's CKA Mediation and Arbitration Blog and have added it to their RSS feed.

Take his current series of posts recounting the experiences a mediation road warrior - the mysterious 'Mr Smith'.

Gems such as this in a mediator's opening: The mediator must remind the parties that if they squander their opportunity to control their own fate, they leave it in the hands of, in Mr. Smith’s words, “twelve people too stupid to get out of jury duty....the best mediators know their target audience and tailor their opening accordingly. Most mediators have a canned speech discussing the nature of mediation process...”

Next he promises us Mr Smith's take on a well timed apology.
