A Spoonful of Sugar Helps… Tonight (September 26, 2016) is the first Presidential debate between the two major political party candidates. Many have expressed a disquieting fear of the debate event itself, let alone what might happen if _________ (you fill in the blank) gets elected. As mediators, our job does NOT require that we […]
A young psychology student was visting a mental institute. The visitor asked the doctor leading the tour how doctors determined when it was time for a patient to be crazy enough to be institutionalized. The doctor said “We actually have a relatively simple test. First, we fill up a bathtub with water. Then we ask […]
Maybe a quote from Garry Marshall (11/13/1934 – 7/19/2016) is even more helpful than the one from Joyce Brothers that we quoted in an earlier post: It’s always helpful to learn from your mistakes because then your mistakes seem worthwhile.
People in conflict often start their self-assessment of their “chances to win in court” with an assumption: “I’m right, and everyone else will eventually understand the obvious.” It should go without saying (but it bears repeating) that if everyone in conflict has that same analysis, at least 50% of people in conflict are likely to […]
How Come…? Resolution Point’s “remote” services help lots of clients who, for various reasons, are not in our offices. Maybe they’re overseas or in another state. Sometimes they’re stuck in a meeting somewhere else. Or maybe there’s a sick family member who must be attended to. Whatever the reason, our remote facilities are available at […]
Einstein is credited for defining “insanity” this way: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. How do you know when it’s time to move on from an unhealthy relationship or a bad business arrangement? Probably more than we can cover in this post. But maybe […]
An 8-year-old boy probably wasn’t thinking about easy entry into partnerships or marriages or any other kind of joint ventures, but how many things can we apply this to? Almost anything is easier to get into than out of. From Never Eat Anything That Moves by Robert Bende, quoting 8-year-old John Duckworth
“Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.” — Lily Tomlin (comedian; also noted for saying: “All my life, I always wanted to be somebody.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
“It was a brilliant stroke of luck that led me to you both. Seriously, the universe cashed in a significant amount of good kharma credit on my behalf to lead me to you. I was in an absolute panic that my separation and divorce were going to crash and burn in a most expensive and catastrophic way, and I’d have to navigate parenting with an openly hostile human, firing shot after shot. From that first phone call, however, I knew you could help me, and you did. You managed to mediate us into an agreement from which we can both walk away satisfied. You never lost control of the situation, and nobody lost their heads. I cannot thank you enough.”
