  3. We agree to listen respectfully to each other and sincerely try to understand the other person’s point of view
  4. We agree not to blame, attack, or engage in put-downs
  5. We agree to ask questions of each other so we can gain clarity and understanding
  6. We agree not to take inflexible positions and instead to express ourselves in terms of our personal needs and interests and the outcomes that we wish to realize
  7. We agree to use our mediation time to work toward what we perceive to be our fairest and most constructive agreement possible
