    ADR Atlantic Instituteoffers these professional development workshops to ADR practitioners, Lawyers, Human Resources Professionals, Managers, Supervisors, and Union Representatives. 

    Room L174, Loyola Building 

    Saint Mary's University

    Halifax, NS

    Overview of the full day workshop

    This session will focus on Questioning Skills as applied to workplace problem-solving processes, harassment and bullying issues, difficult problem-solving, high conflict and emotional situations, performance management meetings, and even power imbalance situations.

    Great negotiators change and shift the other parties’ thinking on issues – not by pushing and convincing, but by engaging the best thinking and problem-solving skills from all parties. 

    Learn to go “fishing” for the most creative part of everyone’s brains, learn how to best attract ideas and creative solutions by focusing on effective questioning and engaging skills.  This workshop will identify a “tackle box” full of skills and tools to elevate anyone’s ability to gain traction with another party on just about any issue.

    In addition, bring you scenarios, your impasses, your difficult situations to the workshop – these will be tackled at the session to give you new approaches and ideas.

    Spend a day learning the Art of the Question, and increase your ability to ask questions that engage, provokes change, and causes people to think differently.
