The regular dictionary definition of mediation is:

“An attempt to bring about a peaceful settlement or compromise between disputants through the objective intervention of a neutral party.”

The nvc model of mediation focuses on connection before outcome. This is a major departure from most mediation processes. NVC Mediation involves 9 micro skills and a number of methods that support creating and building on understanding between parties. 

The process is founded on the premise that the best outcomes emerge from understanding. 

An NVC mediator effectively facilitates a conversation in which each party can be heard and an understanding of each other’s under-lying needs is achieved. This is followed by a rigorous process of developing sustainable solutions.

Consistently, when people arrive at solutions with each other in this way they naturally search for solutions that will work for everyone.
