The IUCN SSC Conservation Planning Specialist Group, in partnership with other leading international conservation organisations, will be delivering a professional training course designed to enable conservation managers, scientists and students to manage group decision-making processes more effectively. In today’s world many of the conservation problems we solve, decisions we take and plans we develop involve collaboration with other people and organisations. Such collaboration is difficult to achieve and requires a certain set of interpersonal and process skills to be most effective. This course is designed to achieve this, building your competencies around listening, conflict resolution, team development, problem-solving and collective group decision-making. By the end of the course you should feel better equipped to manage internal meetings, difficult inter-personal discussions and design multi-stakeholder planning workshops.
