Nobody expects IEP meetings to go sideways; yet, discussions over get rhetorical and unproductive.  In today’s episode I am sharing three super practical, easy steps that will help you get discussions back on the right track. 

I take a lot of continuing education classes on negotiation strategy, and I read about the topic a lot.  Therefore, I know formal negotiation strategy in and out.  Of course, I use those strategies in my day to day practice, but sometimes practical, every day strategies are just as successful – if not more!  I’ll talk to you about the benefits of taking a break and what to do during the break.  I’ll also walk you through a few examples of how I reframe my position in a discussion.  And I’ll give you a few examples of questions that I ask specifically to reframe a discussion and get it back on the right track.  

I also tease a new training that I will be announcing in the Summer of 2021.  You’re not going to want to miss this one!
