Differences and disagreements among Board Members aren’t necessarily a bad thing.  They can be the source of valuable initiatives, and the antidote to group-think. The key is reframing an argument into a problem-solving process that advances the mission of the land trust, while maintaining or even improving relationships among board members.

This webinar teaches the essential skills of Principled Negotiation, a.k.a., Win-Win:

-  Reframing an argument to a joint problem-solving process

-   Engaging in active listening to promote effective communication

-  Differentiating positions from interests

-  Planning and using a BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated argeement)

-  Generating and selecting options for mutual gain

After taking this webinar, participants will be able to use effective negotiation techniques themselves, as well as role-model and coach those techniques with their Board.
