Facilitating and Mediating Effective Environmental Agreements: An intensive three-day workshop hosted by CONCUR, Inc.

Negotiation over complex environmental issues is often required in the day-to-day work of attorneys, planners, engineers and applied scientists, natural resource managers, real estate professionals and experts in hazardous waste cleanup. Yet for many of these professionals, negotiation techniques and their practical application were not part of their earlier training. CONCUR's professional development courses are specifically designed to equip professionals with these skills. Our training and real-world experience make us a premier provider of environmental training services.

"Facilitating and Mediating Effective Environmental Agreements" is an intensive three-day workshop that builds on the theory and skills taught in Course One. It is designed to meet the needs of professionals who are considering using facilitated or mediated approaches, but have limited experience applying these tools to environmental policy disputes. The course is organized around CONCUR’s model of a stepwise process for building agreements. Each participant will have an opportunity to set the groundrules and agenda for a simulated negotiation, and to serve as a facilitator or mediator. In addition, all participants will receive individual coaching and an evaluation of their mediation style.

Course Two topics include:

  • Conflict assessment and stakeholder analysis
  • Negotiation styles
  • The role of power among participants
  • Distinctions between facilitation and mediation
  • CONCUR’s stepwise negotiation process
  • Framing issues and developing groundrules to prepare for a mediated multi-party simulation
  • Joint fact-finding: a process for building the technical foundations of environmental agreements
  • Panel presentation and discussion
  • Single-text negotiation

    Course Two is open to graduates of CONCUR’s Course One, or to individuals who possess some experience and training in the principles of mutual gains bargaining. (If you are interested in Course Two but do not have these qualifications, please contact the Berkeley office of CONCUR for recommended readings to bring you up to speed).
