is it hard to switch hats?

i can see why one might think that but have not found it to be all that difficult. i think the key surrounds the transition from mediator to arbitrator.

a clear transition is key. for that reason, it is important for parties to exhaust mediation efforts before transitioning to the arbitration phase

to say it more simply, i only switch hats once - moving from the role of mediator to arbitrator. switching back + forth risks confusing roles or otherwise complicating the process.
