CANCELLED Negotiating Effective Environmental Agreements Course1, Sept. '13

More and more often, negotiation is a required part of the day-to-day work of many professionals active in the environment, energy, natural resource management, and land use planning fields. While you or your staff may have had some exposure to negotiation, CONCUR’s training can take what may have been informal experience, and take it up to the next level of professional practice, enabling you to produce more powerful negotiated agreements.

Please visit the CONCUR website for full details or to learn about CONCUR's work:

Date: September 5-6, 2013

Location: UC Berkeley Clark Kerr Conference Center, Rooms 203 and 204, 2061 Warring Street, Berkeley CA (not on main UCB campus)

In Course One, we show you how a process of face-to-face negotiation can augment traditional policy making with creative agreements that are better informed and more stable. During the training, participants learn the elements of mutual gains bargaining, apply them in a series of simulated disputes and reflect on the application of these tools to everyday work situations.

Topics include:

  • Using negotiation to strengthen decision-making
  • Key concepts in negotiation
  • Applying dispute resolution theory for practical results
  • Negotiation styles and techniques
  • Role distinctions: negotiators, mediators, and technical experts
  • Hands-on simulations focused on environmental issues
  • Ethical responsibilities of negotiators
  • Tools for effective negotiation
  • CONCUR’s stepwise model of negotiated agreements
  • Case studies of negotiation, with topics ranging from land use planning and water resources management to statewide environmental planning
  • Engaging your current cases: advice on ways to improve environmental decision-making
