In September 2017 Ken Cloke, internationally recognised mediator and author of numerous books on the topic, joined John Sturrock QC, Founder and Senior Mediator at Core Solutions, in conversation at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, in an event also co-hosted by Collaborative Scotland.
We have drawn together some particularly insightful segments from the day, and we hope that you will enjoy watching them:
In this short segment, Ken discusses the meaning and importance of respectful political dialogue.
In this short segment, Ken discusses the importance of separating positions from interests in any negotiation situation.
In this short segment, Ken tells stories about his experiences participating in the American civil rights movement in the late 60’s, and the importance of taking off our masks in order to engage authentically with each other.
In this short segment, Ken discusses how the neurophysiological “tend or befriend” response, interacts with the “fight or flight” response in conflict situations, and how it can be deepened in order to build trust.
In this short segment, Ken explores how we can improve our responses to conflicts by practicing to become more aware of and sensitive to the issues we face.
In this short segment, Ken is joined by Joan Goldsmith, and they discuss moving from power based forms of decision making to rights interests based forms of decision making, and what happens when there are unwilling parties in a mediation.
