Negotiation skills and the ability to manage and resolve conflicts play an important role in the life of a petroleum industry professional. Examples range from negotiating an employment contract to establishing partnerships in oil and gas ventures and on to arranging business alliances with service providers. Conflicts can happen in a competitive or collaborative work environment, and if not managed properly, they can result in significant losses and failure to achieve business objectives.
This 3-hour workshop intends to emphasize the critical importance of negotiation skills and conflict resolution in the workplace environment. Hands-on, realistic examples will help to demonstrate the need for soft competencies for all professionals across the workforce generations.
