  1. This interview was fantastic. As a paralegal currently preparing one of my attorneys for a mediation, two things really hit home for me in this interview. “What is the motivator?” and “Nuanced listening.” In fact, if there isn’t already a hashtag for #nuancedlistening, I am going to create one. This gives me much to think on as I assist in preparation. Thank you for sharing the knowledge wealth!
