Everyday Negotiation Skills

4 October, London

This workshop, delivered by Suzy Power (experienced family consultant and accredited mediator) and Daniel Bennett (experienced mediator and collaborative practitioner), is the first step in making the move towards becoming a collaborative practitioner.

Based on Daniel and Suzy’s experience of principled negotiation in the context of collaborative practice, the workshop will help you to focus on how to negotiate constructively, listen to your clients and reduce stress with colleagues.

Attend this workshop to learn how to:
  • assess the ways family lawyers typically negotiate
  • engage clients in a dialogue which gives them a voice, using language and words positively
  • manage meetings with clients modelling constructive communication
  • focus on the modes of communication, the impact of correspondence and phone calls
  • build your confidence to engage constructively with your colleagues from the outset
  • avoid focusing too much on positions, and more on what really matters to clients
Format of the day:
  • The day will be made up of presentations and interactive exercises in small groups.
  • The training is especially designed to help you in face-to-face working, plan your negotiation approach and improve your interpersonal skills.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
  • This workshop is suitable for solicitors, legal executives and any practitioner who is keen to find a more constructive way forward.
  • You don’t need to be a collaborative practitioner to benefit from this course. It is specifically designed for those people who are interested in exploring new ways to approach negotiation.
