Press release submitted by Results Marketing.

At the next Idea Lab program, "The Advantages of Mediation and Arbitration for Your Business," presenter James E. Slavens, Founder of New Era Mediation Arbitration, will discuss the benefits of mediation and/or arbitration and how this process may prove helpful the next time you must face a difficult dispute. The Idea Lab, a division of Results Marketing, offers live learning experiences in the Quad-Cities.
"The Advantages of Mediation and Arbitration for Your Business" will be held as a Lunch & Learn program from 12 to 1 p.m., July 18, at DHCU Community Credit Union, 1900 52nd Ave., Moline, IL. Admission is $15 and the event will include a catered Chick-fil-A meal. Attendees can select from a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich meal, a veggie-wrap meal, or for one dollar more, a Grilled Chicken Market Salad.
Key areas of Slavens' mediation expertise include business issues, family businesses, labor/management, employment discrimination, custody issues, divorce, civil litigation and personal injury.
"Slavens will discuss various types of mediation and arbitration and tell when and how these methods of conflict resolution can prove most effective," said Todd Ashby, Managing Partner of Results Marketing. "Not all problems can be solved through mediation/arbitration, but this is an option well worth exploring whenever conflicts arise in one's business or personal life."
"When working with New Era clients, my preferred mediation style has been a collaborative problem-solving approach," Slavens said. "This approach encompasses more than just giving advice. In this hands-on technique, the mediator works as a team with the entire group of interested parties involved in a dispute. The mediator then takes the participants through an effective, multi-phase process so that the team can discover the best solution and act upon it."
For more information on the event or to register, please call Les Flesher at 563-322-2065 or email Les@resultsimc.com. Feel free to follow the Idea Lab on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Idealabqc.
