“In 1996, Professor Leonard Riskin offered a grid of mediation styles called the Problem Definition Continuum that describes “what mediators do” in terms of either evaluation or facilitation along one axis, and ways of defining the problem as either broad or narrow along the other axis.” Lisa Blomgren Bingham, Cynthia J. Hallberlin, Denise A. Walker, &Won-Tae Chung, Dispute System Design and Justice in Employment Dispute Resolution: Mediation at the Workplace, 14 Harvard Negotiation Law Review 1, 11 (2009).
