"We brought Sig and Carolyn a hopeless impasse and two parties not at all inclined to compromise.
We couldn't even speak to each other.
At the start I was honest and open about my utter lack of confidence in Sig and Carolyn or in the process.
But they grasped the essential dynamic of our conflict pretty quickly,
gained our trust with humor and understanding, and found more common ground than I thought we had.
And unlike other facilitators we'd sought out for help in the past they kept the inspirational
rhetoric to a minimum, focusing instead on the nuts and bolts of compromise.
It was a ... miracle."
