Facilitation Skills and Collaborative Negotiation Training for Environmental Professionals
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

This course combines concepts and material from NWETC's Facilitation Skills for Environmental Professionals and Collaborative Negotiation Skills for Environmental Professionals. A basic agenda of the topics covered is:


1. How to get a group who is negotiating a compromise to re-direct the course of the negotiations when you are a team member and when you have special knowledge of a desired income.

2. How to identify and advocate for your own interests in a negotiation without bargaining from a fixed position (i.e., how to be a source of creative solution finding that can help a group move forward in your direction).


3. Meeting Leadership Skills - How to design and lead a meeting that maximizes the chance of producing a concrete and tangible deliverable (e.g., a decision, white paper, analysis, recommendation).

4. Meeting Participation Skills - How to lead from behind in a meeting (i.e., when you are a meeting participant, not leader, how to diplomatically re-direct the course of a meeting when it goes off track or is at risk of becoming unproductive).

Problem Management

5. How to manage problem behaviors in a negotiation or in a facilitation.

6. How to get closure and a definitive decision in a negotiation or meeting.

Intended Audience:

Past attendees include: Agency executives, mid-managers, regional biologists, species management experts, land managers, scientific team leaders, cross-agency coordinators, citizen participation experts, supervisors, environmental specialists, and regional directors/supervisors.

Registration: Earlybird pricing for registrations received by February 6, 2019, $595/$545*; $375/$400* thereafter. (*reduced tuition is available for Native American tribes; government employees; nonprofits; students; and NAEP, NEBC, NWAEP members).
