AFFILIATIONS
 

No two successful mediations are exactly alike.  But there are some common principles that, if applied, substantially increase the likelihood of success.
 
Serving as a mediator, Jim Zupancic utilizes the knowledge, processes and skills taught at the world renown Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.  He also exemplfies principles taught by Dr. Stephen R. Covey, his former professor at the BYU Marriott School of Management, and author of the acclaimed Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. The Hon. Patricia M. Killingsworth (Atlanta, GA) has clearly articulated how attorneys can best help their clients in achieving a successful mediation in
Seven Habits of Highly Effective Advocates in Mediation. Jim Zupancic believes in the STAR approach, and his experience teaches by following this approach, and the Seven Habits principles, that parties have a much higher likelihood of success in his mediations.  Jim is co-author of ADR in Oregon, Chapter 19, Real Estate Disputes (Oregon State Bar, 2019 ed.)
