This two-day training covers the use of the S Questions Model in separate, private meetings and in joint meetings
The S Questions Model has been developed by Gerry O’Sullivan and is introduced and developed in her book - ‘The Mediator’s Toolkit: Formulating and Asking Questions for Successful Outcomes’, published by New Society Publishing, Canada, 2018. This book will be provided for course participants, as well as a Course Workbook.
The aim is that participants will learn how to formulate and ask incisive questions to introduce new information, clarify existing information and safely challenge and shift any entrenched thinking of parties in mediation. This is the key to reaching successful and sustainable mediation agreements.
· To introduce, describe and explain the purpose and focus of the S Questions Model so that participants will be able to implement the theoretical learning in practice.
· To demonstrate the use of the S Questions Model through filmed roleplayed examples to embed the practical application of its learning.
· To radically sharpen, focus, and improve the questioning skills of the participants so that their work with mediation parties will affect a shift in parties’ thinking and approach to their conflict.
