This interactive training will help negotiators and mediators move beyond their basic training and take a more in-depth look at strategic techniques that create more power, flexibility, creativity and durability in their processes.
All too often, we revert to our “natural style” of dealing with conflict – this training will add more approaches and skills to your existing toolbox in order to increase your comfort level and expand your range of choices in handling your own conflicts or mediating the conflicts of others.
• Making Strategic not Stylistic Choices in Conflict Interventions: Moving Beyond Your Comfort Zone
• Avoiding Exploitation: Making Mindful Moves in Process and Substance
• Working with High Emotions: Harnessing the Passion and Creativity of Constructive Conflict
• Recognizing and Dealing with Ethical Dilemmas: Avoiding Pitfalls While Expanding Your Choices
