The field of conflict resolution in the workplace is constantly evolving. Fortunately, the Sandman team is up-to-date with the best practices and trends when it comes to resolving business conflicts.
There are a few other types of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as neutral evaluation. Neutral evaluation can be a very effective tool, particularly if you’re unsure if you want to proceed to arbitration or the courtroom. Neutral evaluation usually involves an objective evaluator who’s familiar in the area of law that’s being discussed. Both sides present their case and the evaluator renders a non-binding evaluation on the case’s merits.
Neutral evaluation gives you a better idea of the strengths and weaknesses in your case (and in the other party’s case). This can help you to decide how (and if) to proceed in an effort to arrive at some sort of resolution or decision.
Another form of ADR is called collaborative law, although this form of ADR most often applies to family law and divorce cases, whereby the parties’ attorneys and other professionals work in a collaborative manner to arrive at a fair resolution.
