Negotiation Skills - Add the Art and Science To Your Tool Box

For Attorneys, Mediators, Business and Human Resources Professionals:  Negotiation is the means by which people deal with conflict, and the ability to negotiate well is a basic life skill.  Yet many people, particularly those involved in conflict, do it poorly.  Understanding the basics of negotiation is fundamental to the mediator’s art, the leader’s success, and the attorney’s professional repertoire. This course provides attendees with skills and techniques for practicing the art and science of negotiation and persuasion.  It focuses on the 'interest-based' approach,  and shows how to meet the 'hard-bargainer', difficult people, and challenging situations.

THIS PROGRAM IS VALID FOR 7.75 PDCS FOR THE SHRM-CPSM OR SHRM-SCPSM

Ethics in Mediation for Mediators and Attorneys

As mediators, we are required to be cognizant not only of the ethical requirements applicable to mediators, but also of our other professional obligations. In this program, we will discuss the ethical requirements pertaining to mediators. We will also take into consideration additional rules that apply to attorneys while serving as a mediator.

This program is designed to be interactive.  Attendees will complete a 'quick quiz' at the start of the program and discuss the answers. We will review the applicable Rules of Professional Conduct and Standards of Ethics for Mediators. Hypotheticals will then be posed for discussion based upon to include reference to relevant Legal Ethics Opinions.
