We all face unique challenges in our lives – both personal and professional – that can derail us if we let them. The key to getting past these difficulties is to take a methodical approach to addressing and overcoming each issue as it presents itself.

Sometimes providing an uninterrupted focus on the challenge at hand and using objective friends or colleagues to help us envision how to achieve the best positive result out of what may – at the moment – seem to be a very negative situation, can help.

Mediators are truly gifted at this type of thing – helping clients (such as a divorcing couple) learn how to come to agreement and move on with their lives, both feeling as though they’ve achieved positive gain from a very difficult scenario.

This week, Cindy Bishop, a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator, shares her secrets on how to come to resolution and get what you want in personal and work life scenarios.  CLICK HERE to read Cindy’s recommendations.
