FairWay Resolution Limited is an organisation centred around leading the prevention and resolution of disputes. As part of our commitment to leading best practice dispute resolution, we award an annual scholarship package for anyone working in or studying dispute resolution in New Zealand.
Each applicant is required to submit a short abstract for a proposed paper on a dispute resolution topic of their choice. Up to five applicants are shortlisted and invited to prepare a full 1,500 word paper.
The 2019 winner of the FairWay Resolution Anne Scragg Scholarship is Nurit Zubery.
Born and raised in Israel, Nurit studied law at Tel-Aviv University and worked as a lawyer in the areas of litigation, commercial and employment law, prior to moving to NZ in 1999 where she has owned and managed two successful businesses. In more recent years, Nurit has been exploring her passion in mediation. She studied at the Massey University Dispute Resolution Programme, before beginning an LLM at the University of Auckland.
Continuing my theme of well-being this article presents mental health as a skill. Any skill is learned and practised in order to learn it. It’s refined and further refined, and with practice it starts to become second nature, a default position that becomes easier to do. “Doing mental health” is something we can learn and practice and as we get better at it, so we are able cope with the life’s challenges, make necessary changes and thrive.
We live in a world where people want things in an instant. Instant fame, fortune or success - yet don’t want to sacrifice what is needed in order to have that level of fame, fortune or success. However, the thing I have noticed about success is that it’s made up of multiple small decisions resulting in gradual change that lasts. A little incremental effort or sacrifice can make all the difference.
