From the Paper:

"Robyn is allowed to speak first. This is a conscious decision on the part of the mediator, as Robyn is the one who called the meeting and it is likely that Robert will need to gain some familiarity with the empathic listening process before he begins to respond. Robyn expresses her feelings of frustration; in the last few months, she feels that Robert has hindered her attempts to form an appropriate workplace culture for herself and her co-workers. She also feels as though Robert is doing so not out of disrespect for her abilities but rather as an expression of jealousy towards her for having received a position that he wanted."
