It is often assumed that mediation and negotiation are skills readily available to anyone engaged in politics or diplomacy, especially senior government officials and/or employees. But that is not the case. Professional mediation is a specialized, often highly technical tradecraft in its own right.

Mediations, multi-party negotiations, and other forms of dialogue turn on critical choices over process design, rules and mandates, supporting architecture, negotiation strategy, sequencing, inclusivity, and implementation.

A wide range of technical tools and models further shape the implementation process. 

Collaborative communication best practices draw on a reservoir of lessons learned, technical competencies, and tools developed, over time, by specialists. No two situations are alike, but there is a wealth of lessons - good, bad + ugly - from which a skilled mediator and  mediation process can help with services to draw insights and user knowledge.
