Recently, Hubert Algie was asked to present at the Institute of Surveyors Victoria (ISV) Summer Seminar 2019 conference on the topic of mediation and negotiation. This invitation followed a newsflash earlier this year on the topic (See article here).

The presentation outlined the basics of what a mediation and negotiation is then outlined seven key skills from mediation and negotiation that could assist surveyors resolve disputes:

• listening;
• building trust;
• zone of possible agreement;
• best and worst alternatives to a negotiated agreement;
• understanding anchoring;
• information gathering and problem solving.

Kellehers Australia commends Hubert Algie on his invitation and we understand the conference was well attended and presentation was well received.

As regular readers would know, Hubert Algie is invited each year to teach Dispute Resolution – Negotiation, Mediation, Arbitration at the prestigious Humboldt University (Berlin, Germany).

Deciding between the need to Mediate vs Negotiate is difficult and requires expert attention. Kellehers Australia offers expert mediation skills.
