Mediation Approach & Philosophy
I practice a facilitative approach to mediation
Among the groundswell of mediator choices now available to the public, Chuck Hill stands out for his ability to find rational, workable and enduring solutions to conflict using warmth and humor. With a background in higher education administration and labor relations, Chuck's authentic communication style allows him to relate well to people of all ages and backgrounds, earning the trust of disputing parties and empowering people to work together for mutual gain. This impressive array of skills has led to his mastery of the art and science of mediation. I worked closely with Chuck for many years at the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center where he served as a mediator, trainer/facilitator and board member. Chuck's practice areas include family mediation (co-parenting after divorce or separation) and parent/teen conflict mediation, in addition to mediation in university or business settings. I would not hesitate for one moment to call upon Chuck for mediation assistance! Tamara Ambar former Executive Director Nashville Conflict Resolution Center
I also serve as a Guest Observer/Evaluator for Lipscomb University's Institute for Conflict Management Rule 31 training program.
"Chuck instantly took away all fear and tension that I felt going into mediation. The energy was calm and positive when I had expected it to be tense and awkward. He was professional and efficient, but more importantly, caring and patient. It felt like he really cared about what was best for my son, which made it easier for us to come to mutual agreement. Chuck is the first mediator I would recommend!"This testimonial was reported by Charles Hill on behalf of Caprese Castillon., 2018
Chuck is a highly skilled facilitative mediator who I had the pleasure of supervising as both mediator and co-mediator. He achieved a settlement rate well over 90% in debtor/creditor and landlord/tenant cases which made up the vast majority of our caseload. In addition to my personal observation of mediator performance, we ask disputants to complete evaluations on their experience at the conclusion of each mediation. Chuck’s evaluations have consistently ranked amongst the highest.
