Communication Counts!

Effective labor negotiators have strong communication skills and understand the critical impact that all types of communication have on labor relations. How we communicate – verbally, with body language, using data, with contract language, our proposals, and our closed session presentations each influence the labor negotiation process. Technical labor relations knowledge is essential for success but communication is powerful in accomplishing labor relations objectives. 

Join us at this post-conference presentation to learn successful communication strategies, lessons from communication catastrophes, and to develop methods to ensure that you are able to achieve your agency objectives in the labor relations realm. Areas of focus in this session include:

• Closed session with elected officials; 
• Communicating up with agency executives; 
• Crafting clear and concise contract language; 
• Clarity around the common clauses in labor contracts;
• Using comparable surveys and data; and 
• Verbal/non-verbal techniques at the table.
