A mediator’s word awareness and usage can be a significant factor in mediation

Words are powerful: they can be helpful/harmful, authentic/deceptive, revealing /concealing, concise/confusing .

Based on over 45 years of counselling, dispute resolution, and latterly, mediation, David Mitchell, will expound on the practical uses, psychology and neuroscience of words and listening skills and their impact within mediation and negotiation. Practical and interactive breakouts will enable registrants to learn and use such knowledge by the end of the presentation.

This presentation will enable any professional dealing/interacting with people to listen, intuitively understand, comprehend, cognitively empathise, and appropriately respond. This will enhance the communication-connection and create integrity, truthfulness and trust within any discourse.
