Conflict Resolution Skills for Environmental Professionals
This dynamic, hands-on workshop gives attendees an understanding of effective ways to deal with difficult situations and people. Participants will get extensive practice with skills that can be applied immediately. The overall goal of the course is for attendees to come away with an understanding of principles and techniques for maintaining a professional demeanor while managing conflicts, as well as knowledge of strategies that help keep a conflict from getting in the way of productivity.
This workshop is a companion course with our Facilitation and Collaborative Negotiations courses. What distinguishes this course is its focus on the use of interest-based bargaining techniques, made famous in the book Getting to Yes, for unraveling conflict into cooperation.
A combination of discussions, exercises, lectures, and mock disputes makes this workshop interactive, fun, and productive.
• Environmental professionals who deal with disputes, either on their own or as a third-party asked to assist others.
Past attendees: Agency executives, mid-managers, regional biologists, species management experts, land managers, regulators, scientific team leaders, cross-agency coordinators, project managers, citizen participation experts, and regional directors. Other professionals such as HR professionals, consultants, and supervisors who deal with conflict will also benefit. This training will enhance anyone’s ability to deal with conflict in their own lives as well as helping others navigate through the process. This course is also intended to support career advancement for individuals who aspire to positions where constructive conflict management is a job requirement.
