The mediator may not have a wager in the topic to be discussed and resolved through mediation. The voluntary nature of mediation helps to minimize the misconception of being against the other party. The mediator will assist communication from one party to another. This will help assure that the conversation remains on the relevant issues at hand. Both parties must have their needs heard and an accommodation, or compromise may potentially be reached. If this formula is followed then the mediation will more likely be successful. A successful mediation effort has an outcome that is accepted and owned by the parties themselves.
