It is my pleasure to let you know that I have just started reading a book by one of the leading mediators, Jeffrey Krivis. The book is "How to Make Money as a Mediator."
As he writes on his profile, Jeffrey Krivis began his mediation practice in 1989, when lawyer-mediators in Southern California were rare, and litigators had to look outside the state for experienced practitioners. Now, 19 years later and having resolved thousands of disputes -- including mass tort, employment, entertainment, business, complex insurance, catastrophic injury and class action matters -- Krivis is recognized not only as a pioneer in the field, but also as one of the most respected neutrals in the state.
An adjunct professor at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law since 1994, Krivis teaches negotiation and mediation skills to lawyers and judges. His experiences as both a working mediator and academic prompted him to write two books: “Improvisational Negotiation: A Mediator’s Stories of Conflict About Love, Money and Anger – and the Strategies that Resolved Them” and "How To Make Money As A Mediator And Create Value For Everyone (Wiley/Jossey-Bass 2006). Improvisational Negotiation received the 2006 Outstanding Book Award from the CPR Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution. It is an excellent book which I have already reviewed.
"How to Make Money as a Mediator" gives you tips from a number of experts in their field. I am really looking forward to reviewing this.
