I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. ~George Bernard Shaw

Our Holistic Approach

There are many approaches to Mediation. The Mediators generally use evaluative, transformative or facilitative approach or use a combination or all of them. We at On Common Ground believe in a holistic approach to Mediation. It is an integration of approaches under the umbrella of holistic mediation by harvesting the synergy of all efforts related to conflict management.

People are not just a bundle of problems to us. We believe that the whole is more than just the sum of the parts. This synergistic approach affords everybody the ability and motivation to do more with what little is available because this synergy simply creates more for all. Most of all, we strive to maintain the dignity and integrity of human relationships.

Holistic mediation is also an active and empowering approach. Mediation is all about self-determination. We strive to empower the parties by giving them the tools to march towards self-determined outcomes. We believe that almost all disputes can be resolved outside the court if the parties are determined to do so.

Your determination and our holistic approach is bound to result in a win-win situation for all.

Let us meet...................On Common Ground!
