Experiences with our training to become a mediator:
“One main thing one learns is to be more patient – particularly when people are talking. I have learned to listen more. Before this training, I used to interject a lot while people were talking. Like I was always in a hurry to get the conversation done with. But since the start of the training, I learned to listen more. To be more patient when people are talking, so that I will be able to understand what they were saying better.”
I liked the various offers in the modules best. The techniques have been explained or demonstrated so well that I am already incorporating many into my work.
“Being in this class sharpened my god given ability to actively listen. I now listen to my children and I am willing to mediate them, to get to that resolution they both want and understand them better.
I am intending to do mediation professionally and after this course, I am more resolute to do that.”
Vivian A., Nigeria
Varied and exciting topic modules, carried out by very competent trainers with diverse backgrounds, have made mediation training a great pleasure. Especially the self-taught training sessions made the program super flexibel.
“Through this class, sincerely speaking, what I thought I knew, what I thought I am… Everything was redefined, and I saw myself as an entirely different person.
The addition is, I can go to anywhere in the world now and say I am a trained mediator from IM Campus. And there is this kind of confidence that it gives me.”
Dare Otepola, Nigeria
An excellent deepening of my competence in dealing with conflicts in working life. Helps to learn specific instruments. But also practice from a meta perspective with a helpful look at embedding the conflict. Recommendable!
I found this training really successful. It absolutely met my expectations. It will have a lasting effect in my life. I realized how important it is to respond to interests and needs and how different the perceptions can be.
“I am going to do more trainings. I am not leaving mediation; I have seen the difference.”
Olutoyin Bolaji, Nigeria
One of the most valuable trainings in my life. Both privately and in business, a new way in which conflicts can be solved methodically and practically. It confirms how much the focus is on people and their needs.
“Personally, when I joined this mediation class, I did not have an idea what it should look like or how it should be like. I did not know I would see something that I would like and now I want to stick into it. I tell others that I think I want to do my masters in mediation now. That I want to change, and I am not stopping.”
