WHEN THE RIGHT ANSWER AT THE WRONG TIME IS THE WRONG ANSWER: Understanding Readiness, Pacing, and Timing in Mediation, Negotiation & Collaborative Law

Mediator? Collaborative professional? Coach? Facilitator? Child Specialist? Financial Neutral? This session will be valuable to your practice

Nina Meierding, JD, an international recognized trainer in mediation, alternative dispute resolution, collaborative practice and strategic negotiations will be the featured trainer at the 2019 ANNUAL MEETING of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin.

While some cases reach impasse based on a disagreement about substance, many fall apart because of a breakdown in the process.  This training will focus on effective and efficient preparation, negotiating the process and potential sources of resistance and customized techniques to break impasses.

Nina Meierding has assisted in the resolution of over 4,000 disputes and has conducted training throughout the world, including Canada, Sweden, Ireland, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and India. She has consulted and trained many groups – including court systems, corporations, medical agencies, governmental agencies, school districts, small and large business entities, and individuals in the areas of conflict resolution, cross cultural issues, management skills, and negotiation skills.

Nina served as a special education mediator for the California State Department of Education and was the mediation partner and trainer for the Wisconsin Special Education System (WSEMS) from 2006 – 2017. Nina will draw from research in the field and her experience as a family law advocate, a mediator and as a trainer for almost 30 years. Come prepared to learn practical, usable skills that are applicable to advocacy, collaboration, or mediation cases.
