Negotiation and conflict management skills are important for building and maintaining workplace collaboration and team cohesion.

This highly interactive training will identify and assess factors that are common to a wide range of negotiations. Participants will consider and practice how these factors can be applied and adapted to specific situations including negotiations between individuals, organizations, and community groups, and in multi-party negotiations involving public or nonprofit agencies, the private sector, or other interest groups.

Live, interactive sessions will be offered in an inclusive environment where diverse perspectives, ideas, and opinions are heard and respected.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the distinctions between “interests” and “positions.”
  • Develop a successful negotiation process through the application of specific stages of interest-based negotiation.
  • Apply “interest-based” negotiations to resolve disputes.
  • Use effective communication strategies, tools, and techniques to increase ability to influence others.
  • Apply specific tools and techniques to retain ownership and remain engaged in the negotiation process.
  • Apply adaptive management practices to renegotiate or refine a consensus agreement.
