About the Program
Since 2007, the Picker Center has partnered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to offer approximately 80 high-level FAA managers two-level courses on building skills in the areas of communication and negotiation with an emphasis on how to use these skills to manage performance more successfully. The two courses were offered in 12 different sessions over a three-day period.
FAA’s mission is to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world. Their vision is to improve the safety and efficiency of aviation, while being responsive to their customers and accountable to the public.
Our partnership with the FAA lead to a three Phase training course on building skills in the areas of communication and negotiation, with an emphasis on how to use these skills to manage performance more successfully. Two dimensions that will receive special attention are dealing with difficult employees and engaging FAA clients, as individuals and as institutions, more effectively.
