Negotiation Skills for Planners

Saturday, April 26, 2014, 8:00amPlanners, being situated squarely in the middle amongst developers, communities, planning boards, elected local legislators, mayors or city managers, and the media, are often at the center of conflict. Conflict is ubiquitous--within and between organizations and agencies, between levels of government, between private interests and government, between interest groups and government, between interest groups, between citizens and agencies, etc. The increasing complexity and interrelatedness of the issues that the public sector is called upon to address, and the increasing sophistication and engagement of groups representing both public and private interests, compounds the challenge. To cope with these challenges, planning professionals need to have negotiation skills and need to understand the options they have in terms of conflict management roles. Effective conflict management involves analyzing a conflict, understanding the dynamics between the parties, and determining the appropriate method for approaching and, in most cases, resolving it. Through readings, discussions, and, most importantly, simulations, participants will gain insights into common negotiation mistakes, including their own default negotiation behaviors, and develop a level of comfort with alternative approaches.

Monday, April 28, 2014, 10:30amFast-moving events, like hurricanes and wildfires, as well as more gradual climate change impacts, like sea level rise and drought, present major challenges to our largest cities. As major centers of population and economic engines, big cities are developing adaptation strategies to save lives, protect core functions, and achieve greater resilience in the face of increasing environmental risk. When does it make sense to pursue hard engineering solutions to protect people, infrastructure, and buildings? When does it make sense to retreat from hazard areas? How might the natural landscape or green infrastructure contribute to resiliency? Directors will playback key insights from the recent Big City Planning Directors Institute, cosponsored by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, the American Planning Association, and Harvard Graduate School of Design, where these questions and others were discussed and debated. Hosted by Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, Harvard, American Planning Association.
