Using Proposals with High-Conflict People

Course Description

Everyone has been in a situation where their suggestions were met with angry replies, criticisms or “explanations” of why the suggestion will fail. For mediators, lawyers, therapists, supervisors and anyone else in a negotiation or argumentative situation- this video explains a simple, innovative technique to shift a high-conflict or upset person from complaining and nitpicking to problem solving.

Learn how using a basic "Yes, No or I’ll think about it" strategy stops the blame game in 30 seconds so the parties can reach agreements.
