what is mediation?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process in which a trained neutral mediator facilitates communication between the parties and, without deciding the issues or imposing a solution on the parties, enables them to understand and to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to their dispute. It helps the parties understand and recognize their underlying needs, overlapping interests and areas of agreement. The mediation process is voluntary and confidential.

How COVID-19 Has Affected Individuals
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected individuals in a variety of ways. People have been forced to work from home and deal with the emotional strain of long-distance relationships with friends, family and colleagues for the first time. This has caused a significant spike in the number of people seeking professional help from psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians and counselors to alleviate the stress associated with COVID.
How COVID-19 Has Affected Organizations
Organizations are experiencing increased levels of conflict due to the emergence of virtual teams. With the rise of technology, there is a shift from traditional to new-age mediation and third-party intervention services. This shift increases the need for professionals specializing in organizational development that are well-versed in mediation in a tech-savvy world.
BENEFITS OF USING CONFLICT RESOLUTION PROFESSIONALS
There are many other areas that conflict professionals can help organizations work through, but this provides a solid foundation to begin with. As the workforce becomes more diverse, employers need solutions for adapting within an ever-changing environment where team members have different perspectives on what success should look like both now and in the future. Conflict resolution is one of those necessary ingredients for making sure people feel heard so that teams function better and maintain trust between themselves.
Creativity is the ability to generate ideas that have value in some context or help solve problems. Research shows that organizations with highly creative employees also tend to be more innovative, which leads them to stay ahead of their competition by coming up with new ways of doing things regularly while consistently expanding existing product lines. This strategy enables companies to improve collaboration among teams allowing them access to information and resources, putting them one step closer to achieving future goals and objectives.
