As mediators, we have heard and asked each other the same questions over and over — “How do I make a living doing this?” and “How do I market this?”
Over the last seven years, I have met many amazing mediators who struggle to build their practices because they can’t find the answers to these questions. What I have found is that most of these mediators are lacking some specific business tools and skills. Among these are the abilities to manage finances, market their practices, and be comfortable with sales. I believe that if mediators learn a few basic business skills, they can significantly increase their profits.
Just like with our mediation practices, we can’t guarantee a successful outcome but we can provide people with tools and processes to find a successful outcome. “I’m a Mediator, Now What?” will offer you proven tools that, if you use properly, will help you establish yourself as an expert, define your personal and business brand, market your services, and make the sale.
Yes, this is a significant investment but if being your own boss in a mediation business is what you truly want to do, this training has been developed to give you the tools that you need to move forward. Regardless of the focus, it’s not easy to run your own business. Mediators face especially difficult times because our services and their benefits are not understood. People don’t understand mediation and they don’t immediately think of mediation when they’re in conflict. We have to learn how to establish ourselves and our services as necessary and valuable resources.
