ADR Style: 
"My initial approach to providing mediation services is primarily collaborative and facilitative, with the use of caucus if it will facilitate discussions, however, I let the parties participate in developing the ground rules for the mediation, including the use of a more directive or evaluative approach, if it will be helpful in reaching a resolution."
