What is the mediators role?

The mediator has a duty to the parties to be honest, unbiased and to act in good faith. The mediators help parties involved in the dispute talk to each other and reach an agreement that is satisfactory to both parties. The mediator manages your mediation session, and facilitates the parties in reaching the best solution; however, the parties retain the ultimate decision-making power. Integrity, impartiality and professional competence are essential qualifications for any mediator.
