You’re a small business owner and you’re finally ready to take your business to the next level.
You’ve been working hard and you’re confident that you have a great product or service that people will love. You’re ready to start marketing and growing your business – but there’s one problem.
One of your employees is convinced that your marketing strategy is going to fail, and he or she is refusing to go along with it.
This marketing dispute is threatening to derail your whole business before you even get started.
What can you do?
Mediation for marketing disputes is a process whereby an impartial third party (the mediator) helps you and your employees to communicate and resolve your differences.
Mediation can be an effective way to resolve marketing disputes because it allows everyone to air their grievances and come up with creative solutions that everyone can agree on.
It’s important to remember that mediation is not arbitration – meaning that if you can’t reach an agreement, you are free to walk away from the mediation without any repercussions.
There are many reasons why mediation can be an effective tool for resolving marketing disputes. First, it takes the emotion out of the situation. When you’re in the middle of a disagreement, it’s easy to let your emotions get the better of you and say things that you’ll later regret. In mediation, there is no “winner” or “loser.” The goal is simply to reach an agreement that everyone can live with.
Second, mediation is confidential. Anything said during mediation cannot be used against either party in court or in any other legal proceeding. This allows both parties to feel free to express their true feelings and opinions without fear of reprisal.
Finally, mediation is flexible. The mediator will work with you and your employees to find a solution that meets everyone’s needs. This flexibility is often lacking in more traditional methods such as arbitration or litigation, where there is only one outcome – either one side wins or the other side loses.
If you’re dealing with a marketing dispute in your small business, don’t give up hope – try mediation! Mediation is a confidential, flexible, and effective way to resolve disagreements without going to court.
