Lions, Lambs, and Mediation Misconceptions

We’ve all heard about March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb.

Some think — mistakenly — that mediation is the same.  They avoid mediation because they fear they are expected to come into it like a lion, in strength,  and finish the process like a lamb, in weakness.

In fact, the goal of mediation is to create a resolution to conflict that allows all involved  to act in their own best interests.  And that can mean everyone emerges feeling like a lion.
