"Conflict Resolution/Negotiating Skills for the HR Professional"
Wednesday, April 13, 2016
Location: UWO Alumni Welcome and Conference Center

7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.    Registration / Networking – Breakfast Included
8:00 a.m.              Announcements
8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.    Program

Approved for 1.5 general credits toward PHR/SPHR Recertification from the Human Resource Certification Institute

SHRM PDC(s): 1.5 (approved) Oshkosh Area SHRM is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.

Presentation Description:
Often Human Resource professionals are utilized by companies as de facto conflict resolution. "Two employees are in a disagreement; send them to HR."  What is implied in that is that HR needs to find ways of helping these employees find a way of resolving the issues.  The basis of any form of conflict resolution is negotiation.  Additionally, HR is responsible for negotiating employment contracts with new hires (sometimes with input from other executive staff).  

Professionals in HR need to be good negotiators in order to perform their jobs effectively.  This presentation will provide Oshkosh Area SHRM members with 6 Tips for Better Negotiation.  These 6 tips are: Utilization of Interest Base Bargaining, Listening, Talking to Them (Not Yourself), Recognizing Differences - Not Wrongs, Good Communication, and the biggest tip is Preparation.  

Each of these six tips will be described in detail during the presentation, highlighting both the scholars behind the research and the real-world application and examples from the years of conflict resolution/negotiation performed by the presenter.  

Without recreating the entire presentation in written form here, a brief introduction to the six tips are: 

  1. Interest Based Bargaining - the idea of looking beyond what people are asking for to see why they are asking for it.  This stems from Getting to Yes, a book by Roger Fisher and Bill Ury of Harvard.
  2. Listening - we fail to listen.  We think at about 300 words per minute, but speak at only 75.  So we think we know what people are going to say before they say it.  Failing to listen results in poor negotiation and increases conflict.
  3. Talking to Them (Not Yourself) - the Golden Rule says we should treat others the way we want to be treated.  However, we should really be treating others the way that THEY want to be treated.  People find us more believable, persuasive, and interesting when we communicate with them the way they communicate
  4. Recognizing Differences - Not Wrongs - too often we find differences between two accounts of an event and decide that someone is lying.  Why must someone be lying for accounts to differ?  Our different perspectives change what we can see and colors our recollection.
  5. Good Communication - a presentation onto itself.  The better we can communicate with those we are negotiating with, the more likely we are to have a good result.  This portion of the presentation will included a significant portion on diversity and communicating through diversity.
  6. The big one - Preparation - we all prepare for a business pitch or for an interview - but many of us fail to prepare before a negotiation.  What do I want?  What do they want?  What do I have to have?  What are my alternatives?  All of these need to be considered before starting a negotiation in order to result in a good outcome.
