From the conference program:
The Inspiration Intervention
Mediators utilize various interventions to coach parties from no to yes. Most of us listen, some of us reality test, others coach, and a few cajole. This plenary session explores the use of an arguably under-articulated mediator tool: inspiration. How do we inspire the parties as an impasse breaking technique? How does sparking insight settle cases?
