About the course

Become a more effective negotiator by developing your “tool kit” of negotiation tactics and strategies. Through this program offered in Hong Kong, you will learn an extensive set of negotiation experiences in class, practice your skills, and benefit from valuable feedback.

Because little in business (or life) gets done without negotiation, this program has the potential to deliver significant upside in your professional and personal outcomes.

In this program, you will learn from an extensive set of negotiation experiences in class, practice your skills, and benefit from feedback. The course begins with an introduction to basic negotiation concepts and tactics, followed by a focus on important aspects of the negotiation process—obstacles to effective communication at the bargaining table, the maximization of multiple interests, and tactics for coalition building. In the final session, we put it all together by introducing the impact of social capital on strategic negotiations and exploring negotiations that contain elements of both cooperation and competition.

By attending this program, you will:

  • Learn strategies for negotiation analysis and preparing for negotiations.
  • Understand different strategic choices (and interpersonal skills) that drive relative success at the bargaining table.
  • Know what information is needed to negotiate effective outcomes.
  • Engage in a variety of negotiation simulations and receive immediate feedback.
  • Experiment with new techniques and test their effectiveness in the safety of the classroom.
