3 Myths About Mediation

Have you ever considered mediation in your business?

For many companies, mediation can be a complicated process- and misinformation runs rampant!

The biggest myth holding businesses back from mediation is the fear of mediation working against them, instead of with them.

Today, we’ll discuss these myths, and how you can use mediation in your business to help you grow, maintain a cohesive team and much more!


MYTH #1: Mediation Takes A Lot Of Time

This might be one of the most damaging myths to mediation- the myth that mediation takes a long time before you reach a solution. However, mediation usually takes less time than court cases and litigation. While there is a time investment in mediation, these cases typically do not drag on nearly as long as complicated court cases.


MYTH #2: Mediation Is Basically The Same As Court

A fear held by many businesses is the idea that mediation is the same as a court case. This can be frightening when you think about the legal outcomes and repercussions that might arise from a court case. However, mediation does not take place in a court of law, and the rules and regulations are very different. 

For one, there is no focus on right and wrong, but rather on working together to reach a join and mutually beneficial arrangement that helps all parties.

Mediation does not require you to have a legal team, and the process is a lot quicker and more affordable in the vast majority of cases. 


MYTH #3: Nothing Is Confidential In Mediation

This is not true at all! When you enter into a mediation, it is treated with utmost confidentiality. The only times information is shared, is between legal teams and members within the company- but your personal information is still handled with care and is legally protected.
