For the second year in a row, CPTI professionals trained 110 attorneys from all over the state of Maryland for the Maryland Administrative Office of the Courts at the AOC 3 Day Introductory Collaborative Team Training. Training took place in Annapolis at the beginning of March.
I truly enjoyed the 30-Hour Interest-Based Negotiation and Mediation Skills Training. It was a wonderful way to connect with other Collaborative professionals and practice communication and facilitation skills that are invaluable tools for Collaborative work. I learned a great deal about myself as both a person and as a professional and left the training feeling invigorated about my work. Many thanks to the trainers for their guidance and support!

In the bookInfluencer: The Power to Change Anything, the authors believe "People will attempt to change their behavior if
(1) They believe it will be worth it, and
(2) They can do what is required."
In the 30 hours of interest-based negotiation training, the instructors provided both. If you weren’t convinced of the value of the Collaborative Process before you came, you were when the training was over. The professionals demonstrated over and over again throughout the week the profound value of CP. And due to the many opportunities attendees are given to participate in mock sessions, you leave knowing you can do what is needed in Collaborative Practice.
