Interest-Based Bargaining Training

Kitty Simmons from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services came and met with the District (Dr. Johnson, Dr. Godfrey, Dr. LeMaster, and Mr. Thomas) and JEA (Melissa Brown, Karl McKenzie, Kara Goodwin, Cindy Carroll, Laura Black, me) Negotiations Teams today in Interest-Based Bargaining (IBB) Training.  We spent the day learning the process of identifying issues, interests, solutions, standards, and coming to consensus.  We believe there will be more open discussion and dialogue by using IBB over traditional negotiations techniques.    Our first meeting will be March 15 to establish ground rules.
