WMG primarily uses a facilitative style of mediation whereby the mediator works with the parties to help them identify the issues and come up with options for resolution. The ultimate decision or agreement is up to the parties. The role of the mediator is to facilitate a conversation between the parties and help them craft a resolution that addresses their concerns. If the parties are unable to reach a resolution their rights to seek further legal redress is not adversely affected. However, in mediation, the parties have complete control over the outcome of their dispute as opposed to having a third party decide for them.
