Resolving Conflict Through Negotiation


  • October 12, 2017 from 8:30am to 4:30pm


This seminar is designed for landmen and other individuals who wish to upgrade their communication skills through the use of interest-based negotiations.  This negotiation model is the model used in the settlement of disputes by the AER and subscribed to by the C2C Task Force.


This seminar will instruct negotiators of any level of experience in the skills of interest-based negotiations which is formulated on the Harvard and Justice Institute of British Columbia Model.  The seminar will focus on practicing select communcation skills to:

i)  identify the negotiation matter at issue

ii)  discover and understand both your own and the other party's underlying interests which are motivating the hardened positions taken in the negotiation; and

iii) brainstorm options which meet the underlying interests common to both parties and unique to each party so that a win-win agreement can be reached.  When agreements are based on interests rather than positions the parties are more satisfied with the outcome and the relationships are preserved for future negotiations.  Special attention will also be paid to handling the other party's pressure tactics.

Registration Fee includes beverages and snacks.
