Creating the “Personal Touch” Online: Building Rapport and Managing Emotions in Online Dispute Resolution with Dr. Debra Dupree on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

June 2, 2020

As a leading online dispute resolution professional, by far one of the most common questions that I hear is how do you establish rapport with participants or manage difficult emotions in an online proceeding when everyone is remote from each other?  There is great concern that you lose "the personal touch" in a virtual mediation but the good news is that there are ways to adjust your approach to continue to connect with your participants naturally with easily implemented tips from this week's guest, Dr. Debra Dupree, The Mindset Doc!  Dr. Debra is a psychologist and leading mediator and trainer who shares her insights for transitioning the emotional content of your mediations and online dispute resolution proceedings to the online platform to help you help your clients to resolve their disputes and move forward as you have always done.  

Some highlights from this episode:

  • Find out why the pre-mediation conference(s) with the parties is more important than ever in a virtual mediation.
  • What is the question that most mediators miss asking?  
  • How does the acronym BEACH help you to find out what is important to your participants?
  • What percentage of our communication is through our expression, intonation vs. the words we say?
  • What happens to emotional intensity when participants are not in the same room?
  • Why are the attorneys in mediation often more challenging emotionally to work with than the clients?

Dr. Debra is a veteran of hundreds of workplace and family mediations herself, both in person and online, so she is the perfect person to help us all to create that "personal touch" online - be sure to listen before your next online dispute resolution proceeding!

More information on this week's guest, Dr. Debra Dupree:  Dr. D represents the best of the best as an extraordinaire Business Mediator/Trainer and phenomenal transformational Keynote Speaker and Workshop Facilitator.  As the MINDSET Doc, her program, The AGILE Lawyer:  Leveraging Your Mindset, decodes the formula for moving litigators into peacemakers for client preservation and how to monetize the mediation mindset to pivot successfully.

Debra has extensive training and experience in the psychology of human behavior and dispute resolution.  As the Director of Training for Mediation Training Institute (MTI), she worked directly with MTI’s founder, Dr. Dan Dana, a forerunner in the field of dispute resolution, training attorneys and human resource professionals as Workplace Mediators throughout North America.

While not an attorney, she thought often about pursuing law school and even taught at law school in ADR for several years.  But, ultimately decided to stick to her passion for dealing with human behavior in conflict, seeking resolution.  Afterall, she was married to two attorneys and learned a lot along the way.

Needless to say, she is attracted to the legal mind, its intellect, and ability to solve legal problems...she just wants to see advancement in their ability to deal with people problems!

Preparation is Everything: How to Properly Get Clients Ready for Virtual Dispute Resolution on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #109

Preparation is Everything: How to Properly Get Clients Ready for Virtual Dispute Resolution on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #109

May 26, 2020

They say that when you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail and in the world of virtual mediation and online dispute resolution this is especially true! In this episode, online mediation expert, Susan Guthrie, walks mediators and attorneys through the important steps that should be taken to prepare clients for a virtual mediation. The true path to a successful resolution starts long before the first mediation session actually begins and the attorney bears much of the responsibility for making sure the client is ready to go when they click the link to join the meeting. The client needs to know what practical information they need in advance, such as the programs being used and the equipment and set up that they will need to participate. Then there are all the process factors and issues of privacy and confidentiality to be communicated and understood. Finally, advocates should be aware of the potential for unconscious bias against an unprepared client.

There is a famous quote that says "give me 6 hours to cut down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe." Preparing your client for mediation is the same and much of an attorney's effort should properly be focused on the process before the mediation begins. Don't get caught with a dull axe - LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE TODAY!
