  • allows participants to exchange information, identify issues, uncover obstacles, explore options, and create agreement terms that will work for each person.
  • encourages people to follow through with solutions because they have had an active role in the decision making process.
  • fosters better communication and improved relationships.
  • is a future-oriented process that helps clarify each person’s perspective and expectations.
  • is an information process that allows participants to consult with outside experts and resources such counselors, accountants, lawyers, and other service providers.
