Arbitrators talk with disputants to explain issues, identify underlying concerns, and design an understanding of their respective needs and interests. They also use mediation techniques to enable communication between disputants, to further parties' understanding of different perspectives, and to guide parties toward mutual agreement. Finally, arbitrators prepare appointments for parties to meet for mediation.

Every day, arbitrators are expected to be able to articulate ideas and problems. They need to listen to and understand others in meetings. It is also important that they read and understand documents and reports.
