Description

Capabilities with people – whether reading a client's concern or settling an internal conflict – influence results and determine success.

Over three days, Negotiation Strategies teaches you how to get the most out of negotiations by creating a winning proposition for both sides. You also explore methods for successful conflict resolution and understand the impact of cultural differences in the negotiation process.

Most people are surprised at how much they need these skills on a day-to-day basis. People expect they will develop skills in negotiation with vendors or over salaries. What they begin to realize is that when you're in a meeting it's a negotiation, a marriage is a negotiation, and raising children is an extremely challenging negotiation.

— Robert Bontempo, Faculty Director

Negotiation vs. Persuasion Skills

Are you looking to complement your negotiation skills with expert persuasion skills? In these short videos, the program's faculty director Bob Bontempo explains why persuasion and negotiation are different sets of behaviors but with two complementary skill sets, and a past participant explains his need for both skills in his role.

Impact

"Technical skills are what poker players call 'table stakes,' the minimum currency one needs to 'get into the game.' But later on, we find that it is an executive's softer skills that determine their ability to create value, drive change, and build institutions.

"The current round of economic turmoil means that certain organizational responses are inevitable. Mastery of the softer interpersonal skills is what will separate those who merely survive these changes from those who will thrive and grow as leaders."

The program examines each element of a negotiation, applying a framework of strategies based on psychological research. As you participate with peers in a series of increasingly difficult, real-world negotiation simulations, you will benefit from constant feedback and the refinement of new techniques. –Robert Bontempo, faculty director
