For the Layperson

Hi! Welcome to Mediation is Dead.  If you’re a “layperson,” meaning you’re not a legal or mediation professional, this page is for you.

Understand that I am not reaching out to you because you’re in conflict, or because you want to embrace conflict.  This is about making sure you live a conflict-free life, or as close to it as possible.

What does that mean?  We all live in a state of conflict.  We are very cognizant of that, whether it be in a professional setting, relationships, or otherwise.  I am not here to tell you that any approach is right.  Not even the MiD approach.

What I can tell you is that if you take the principles I teach here, things that will be transformative to your life, your communication set will improve.  You will be able to speak to people in a manner that will give you confidence.  You will be able to enrich your life in a way you’ve never expected.

The key is your success in applying my methods.  I’ve spent thousands of dollars on learning these techniques.  I’m giving them to you because I want you to live as close to a conflict-free life as possible, and I’m doing so because I know that if five percent of the people I reach are there and listening, then I’ve done my job.  I’ve contributed, and I’ve made a difference in society.

When you take the MiD mindset, and apply those methods, you’re less likely to get in a courtroom.  You will more than likely resolve conflicts on your own.  And if you need an attorney or mediator, you will be more prepared for what they have to offer you.

(By the way, if you’re a legal professional or a mediator, I know you’ve read this.  That’s part of attention management, which you can learn about here.)
