7. Say Yes to New Adventures
Table top games, zombies, comic cons, scavenger hunts... how much do these things directly impact mediation skill building or outreach? Maybe some of these activities are not direct paths for all mediators, but at least one of the mediators involved in these unconventional projects has found herself happier, less stressed out, and more inspired to practice her craft, and to learn from the mediation community, because it is not just a field where she works, it is also where she can play.
Saying yes to new adventures has helped mediators have different conversations about conflict resolution, and speak to new audiences. Creative collaboration has lead to market growth. Trainings are more effective when they can also be enjoyable.
