A successful mediator is knowledgeable of diverse methods and techniques for the resolution of disputes and can adapt to the unique circumstances of a given case to effectively manage the mediation process.  A good mediator should be able to meet the parties where they are at and provide the parties with a forum where they can explore all viable possibilities for the resolution their dispute.
