CANCELLED (Low numbers) Negotiation - Beyond the Basics for Planners

How effective are you at giving messages and influencing others in negotiations? What can you do to encourage people to constructively problem-solve with you? If others appear unreasonable what can you do? Is the image you hope to convey congruent with how people see you in negotiations? What negotiation difficulties are planners experiencing and what can you do about it?

This one day course aims to help you find answers to the questions above and to practice skills beyond the basics. The day includes brief presentations, skills exercises (resource management examples), peer feedback sessions and discussion.

The day will include work on a case involving competing interests over protecting high value land.
