Fast Track Negotiation Skills

The Fast Track Negotiation Skills course is open to Queensland state and local government Right to Information and Information Privacy practitioners.

The course is designed for participants to learn and practice new techniques for negotiating effectively with applicants and stakeholders in the Queensland Right to Information (RTI) and Information Privacy (IP) context. Facilitating access to information often involves a series of rapid negotiations with a range of internal and external stakeholders. The course has been specifically designed for the RTI and IP environment and acknowledges that negotiations deal with highly sensitive issues in a time critical and legally complex setting.

By the end of the two–day course participants will be able to:

  1. effectively prioritise negotiation resources
  2. apply the seven elements of the Harvard negotiation model
  3. identify negotiation opportunities within the RTI/IP legislative framework
  4. employ strategies for managing unreasonable conduct
  5. communicate in high conflict settings and
  6. problem solve for strategic improvement.
