Hydro Licensing Negotiations Training
Join NHA and Gomez and Sullivan for this is a two day hands-on training seminar in interest based negotiating specifically dealing with the challenges of FERC Licensing. Participants will learn about various negotiation techniques as well as types of negotiators. The concepts of interest based negotiations vs. positional bargaining will be explored in the context of the Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement (BATNA). Topics covered in short presentations will be reinforced with negotiation of a settlement for a previously settled FERC Licensing Case. The course settlement will be compared to that actually arrived at in the field. Negotiator performance will be evaluated and feedback provided. Course admission includes the reference book Getting to Yes by Fisher, Ury and Patton which will be distributed to participants approximately two weeks before the course.
Who should attend:
Licensees, agency personnel, and nongovernment organization will all benefit from this course.
