The skills-based exercises will introduce the use of open questions to improve outcomes, principles of active listening, and summarizing techniques to navigate difficult conversations. Participants will learn how to promote interest-based bargaining by unpacking facts, interests, and feelings, for the purpose of creating mutually beneficial solutions. Participants will be introduced to case studies involving different approaches applying what they have learned to these scenarios.
