About the course
Through negotiation simulations and lecture, participants learn and practice a variety of approaches to negotiations, how their effectiveness varies by situation, the effectiveness of their own style and how to flex it. The key emphasis is placed on how these techniques can be used in business negotiation as well as dealing with difficult people in everyday work life.
Drawing on the techniques used by hostage negotiators, suicide and crises interveners and international peace-makers, this interactive course gives participants many opportunities to practice various negotiations techniques. During this two-day workshop, a series of interactive simulations provide a common reference point for all participants to discuss negotiation concepts. The goal is to change the way you think about and approach negotiations.
