I totally agree. Mediator mindfulness is at the heart of effective mediation. For me mindfulness is about being aware of one's own theory-in-use or blind spots. When we operate from our espoused theory with little mindfulness a gulf forms between how we should think and act as a mediator and how we actually think and act.
I don't so much have a metaphor but I do see myself as a Columbo (as in Peter Falk) type of mediator - full of curiosity.

Many thanks for this and other posts, a wonderful resource for mediators.

Best wishes


Thanks for your comment, Aled. I think Columbo is an excellent role model. Sandler Sales Training uses him very effectively. The Columbo character was brilliant.
