29 August – 31 August 2023
Singapore Mediation Lecture 2023 - The Next Wave of Effective Dispute Resolution: Developing Emotional and Social Intelligence
by Singapore Mediation Centre
31 August 2023, Thursday
15:00 - 17:00
Conrad Centennial Singapore

Trumpeted as crucial skills needed for the next generation of leaders, emotional and social intelligence play a vital role in any form of negotiation. Culture, socialisation, gender and family dynamics often play a role in developing and appreciating these skills long before we use them in the workplace. Moreover, the pandemic—and remote communication—have upended traditional thinking about connection and rapport. How do emotional intelligence and social intuition get translated into effective negotiation and mediation? How can we make better decisions about the variety of modes of communication? And how can negotiators—and mediators—improve their own skills going forward?
