Join The CFO RoundTable Boston on Wednesday, February 12, as we present “Managing Relationships As We Negotiate,” where we’ll discuss the many different approaches to conflict resolution by studying the fundamental process skills that can allow two or more parties to manage and improve the ebb and flow of discourse that charts a verbal voyage towards a mutually desirable destination.
You will learn:
- The communication barriers to effective relationships
- How to begin with the end in mind-navigating the road ahead to reach your destination
- How to assess your negotiation style
- Conflict Management in Negotiation
- How to reveal and understand underlying agendas
Our speaker is Michael J. O’Halloran, Senior Lecturer, Bentley University. Since his election as his hometown’s youngest-ever City Councilor, Michael J. O’Halloran has compiled an encyclopedic knowledge of the inner workings of national, state and local government. He is, quite simply, a master of community-based issues, including the fine art of building trust and understanding between citizens and their government.
Michael’s experience spans business, education and government. As evident in this book, he’s been on both sides of the table – offering tough questions as an elected official and providing education, guidance and action to all. He employs numerous techniques including facilitation, negotiation, mediation and training. His hands-on approach aims to reduce conflicts, improve discourse and attain desired goals.
