This two-week online experience combines live sessions with group work, gamification strategies and other resources to create an engaging atmosphere of dynamic practical learning. Within this context, participants will explore the theory and practice of negotiation, learn about the theory behind complex systems, and acquire new intercultural communication skills.
The objective of this module is to identify the different types of negotiation, understand the role of culture within negotiations, and learn how to think about complex negotiation processes. By the end of this module, participants will have acquired a new vision of negotiation strategies that will allow them to move forward with the remaining modules.
Using the CAPS approach, participants will discover how to prepare and analyze a complex negotiation in a structured way, and as part of a team. Building on the foundations developed during the first module, participants will establish formulas for proposing and creating solutions.
This part of the program teaches participants how to start a negotiation, presenting methods for creating positive relationships and promoting active listening. As effective communication techniques are considered, the program explores how emotional intelligence can be leveraged to better understand influence from external actors within negotiations.
Discover how a competitive negotiation style and specific tactics used in the distributive phase are essential to entering into a negotiation with eyes wide open. This module also shows participants to design and implement an agreement once this point is reached.
