Everyday Negotiation Skills Manchester


16 November, Manchester.

Ever had that sinking feeling about negotiating with the other side?

Ever wondered ‘What’s an effective approach when dealing with more experienced practitioners or people I don’t know? What does a good outcome look like for my client? Will these parents ever speak again?’?

Everyday Negotiation Skills will help you to focus on how to negotiate constructively, listen to your clients and reduce the stress with colleagues. Through a combination of presentations and group exercises, you’ll develop your face-to-face working skills and improve your interpersonal skills.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

· The workshop is particularly suitable for solicitors and legal executives

· This workshop may not be suitable for those who have trained as collaborative practitioners

The session is run by Suzy Power, collaborative practitioner and consultant in dispute resolution, and Daniel Bennett, firm Director and Head of Family, collaborative practitioner, mediator and psychologist.

This workshop will look at how you can:

· 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 focussing too much on positions, and more on what really matters to clients
