At CONCUR, we draw upon our experience in resolving tough disputes in both the public and private sectors to design training courses in negotiation, facilitation and partnership building.
We developed this training program in response to a growing demand for more effective problem-solving skills among top policy makers and administrators, business, industry and community groups and attorneys. CONCUR trainings provide participants with the tools to help resolve complex disputes within or between organizations and agencies.
CONCUR offers two annual open-enrollment training courses: “Negotiating Effective Environmental Agreements,” a two-day introductory course, and “Facilitating and Mediating Effective Environmental Agreements,” an advanced three-day course. Participants typically include staff of local and federal natural resource agencies, top environmental NGOs, and private firms dealing with environmental permitting and stakeholder engagement/public relations.
We also offer private, customized training courses in negotiation, facilitation and partnership building. We work with organizations to determine their training needs and then design courses specifically tailored to the issues they are working to resolve, on subjects ranging from

Praise for past training courses:
Very well done – I especially enjoyed the blending of the theoretical and the practical application through the simulations.
This training exceeded my expectations. At this point in my career it is tough to find courses that add value to my learning experience. This one did.
It was not a single part, but the whole that made the course most effective. Maintain the balance between theory and practice!
This was a very useful course – it kept me engaged. I’ll take back a lot of new strategies. It was also a good opportunity for self-assessment.
Huge gratitude for sharing your expertise and for the great work you’re doing!
Thank you! I feel personally empowered – and enriched – by this experience.
