Negotiating with Allies within a Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative – Aiken – 2016
We all know it can be hardest to say “No” to the people closest to us. This same dynamic can be true in a Family Justice Center where colleagues work closely toward a common goal of delivering best responses to violence survivors. So, what is the best way to handle it when you think you should say No to a colleague, and you are worried about doing harm to your collaboration? This webinar gives an introduction to the concepts of interests-based negotiation and the “Positive No”, specifically as they can be used by close allies working across different professions in the anti-violence community. Interests-based negotiation and the Positive No are tools that allow the needs of both allies to be met without sacrificing values or destroying the relationship.
