What is the role of the parties at mediation?

The parties should cooperate with the mediator in a good faith effort to resolve their conflict.  They should come prepared with documents and other information to help the mediator understand the issues, and should be willing to disclose to the mediator information that is relevant and necessary to resolve the conflict.  Parties should be prepared to discuss the facts and their perspective of the status of the conflict. Parties should also be prepared to listen to the other perspectives brought to the table, so that everyone can work in good faith to resolve the dispute.
