MWI Mediator Roundtables

Roundtables bring mediators and other practitioners together to discuss new ideas, strengthen ADR skills and to provide opportunities to learn from and engage with top-notch presenters from the local conflict resolution community. Roundtables are free for all active MWI mediators. For those who are not active MWI mediators, we welcome you to attend up to one free Roundtable per calendar year. Thereafter, those who are not MWI mediators are still welcome to register, but with a $50 fee for attendance.

RSVP is required by registering here. Registration will close 48 hours prior to the start of the event.

  • February 12, 2019 – “How Can You Say That? Choosing Our Words as Mediators”

February 12, 2019 – “How Can You Say That? Choosing Our Words as Mediators”

Social Time – 3:00PM – 3:30PM
Presentation – 3:30PM – 5:00PM
Presenter – Kate Fanger

Words can float boats or sink good will. Choosing words carefully is not the small stuff, in work or in life. Subtle or obvious, the words we use are powerful tools, weapons, levers, invitations, and more. This will be an interactive workshop for improving your choice of words with your clients and colleagues to create rapport, hope and effective communication. Kate Fanger is an experienced mediator and conflict coach who  has made selectively chosen language the “art form” of her practice. Join her at this Roundtable to develop an awareness about the words we use and take part in discussion on some specific language tools that support successful conflict resolution and communication in general.
