About the course

Turning Good Negotiators into Great Negotiators

Senior executives need exceptional negotiating skills for the highest-profile decisions and for the daily demands of the workplace. This program looks at a range of issues, from multicultural negotiations, to ethical dilemmas in negotiations, to negotiating in deal-making situations. You will carry out a methodical self-assessment of your negotiating style, identifying your strengths and your potential areas for improvement.

Emerge with the advanced preparation and solid framework to go from a good negotiator to a great one.


  • Learn about the principles of negotiation in different business contexts.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the negotiation process and improve your ability to negotiate in collaborative and competitive situations.
  • Foster more effective relationships through the ability to analyze counterparts in different cultures and emotional levels.

The “High Performance Negotiator” program will tackle the following topics:

  • Cooperative-competitive tension: Benefits of cooperative negotiation, also known as coopetition.

The program leverages a wide range of highly dynamic and interactive teaching methodologies, including group discussions, class lectures, exercises, the case study method and a computer simulation, all aimed to hone your skills as an agent of change. These teaching methods have been strategically combined to foster an optimal learning environment. The on-site edition takes place on the school’s Barcelona campus.
