Royalty Owners Communications

Give your organization the winning edge in royalty owner and joint interest owner relationships by equipping your people with the communication, rapport and nonverbal negotiation skills they need to succeed.
How You Succeed – Royalty owners and joint interest owners are crucial to the success of oil and gas operations. Companies that effectively work with these two groups have a better chance of cordial relations, fewer complaints and lower litigation costs. This is why anyone that comes in contact with royalty owners or joint interest owners needs the skills necessary to build trust and maintain good relationships, and that is the goal of this training. These two groups have unique communication needs, as well as special questions and complaints. From the time a lease or a joint venture agreement is signed, until a check is deposited, there are many interactions and communications that need to be protected and handled with care. Benchmark has years of experience in the oil and gas industry, and understands the highly technical, legal and leasehold issues in the industry. A Master Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) expert and oil and gas attorney involved in countless royalty owner and joint interest owner negotiations developed this cutting-edge training program to give your professionals the strategies they need to be more successful. Our coaches are also experts in NLP, the study of behavior and language patterns, and we understand the role of emotions in royalty owner and joint interest owner communications. Studies show emotions trump data when people make decisions, and our expertise allows us to help you respond to royalty owners and joint interest owners at an emotional level for more satisfying experiences.
What You Will Learn – Many companies struggle with creating a positive experience with royalty owners and joint interest owners, because the various types of inquiries are challenging – and unresolved complaints can turn into lawsuits. But, we can improve your professionals’ capabilities in a range of important areas, including emotional alignment skills, creating win-win agreement frames, solution frame language, beliefs, perspective language patterns, aligning versus boxing strategies, deep listening and rapport skills, state management skills, conflict resolution strategies, information gathering skills, nonverbal negotiation skills, motivation strategies and much more. You will learn and practice strategies that result in clearer communications and a more satisfying experience for your royalty owners and joint interest owners - to give your organization the winning edge you need in these relationships.
