This workshop explores in an interactive way, the future of workplace ADR and our profession as workplace neutrals. Is mediator compensation dropping? Do attorneys resent us? How is innovation changing our profession? Is conflict coaching and cultural consulting the new wave? Is it time to establish hard qualifications for mediators? We will discuss the evolution of client expectations toward mediation, arbitration, conflict management systems, and if generational differences will alter our profession. Audience participation will be encouraged
