Overview

We negotiate every day to make our way through life. We need cooperation and collaboration from others in order to succeed and build a useful network; we need tact, personability and negotiation skills. This course will help participants understand their own underlying styles of negotiations, the types of negotiations, the techniques and strategies of negotiation, and build their competency to deal in conflict situations. The sessions will bring in experiential learning through the use of exercises, mock negotiation and role-play. Peer learning and feedback would play an important role as well.

In this programme, you’ll learn how to transition from a capable dealmaker to an expert negotiator and how to create value for yourself and your organisation. The goal of successful advanced negotiation is not merely “closing a deal” but arriving at the best possible agreement. Going beyond basic negotiation tactics, this highly interactive program delves into strategic planning and systematic thinking that exemplifies expert negotiators.

Great negotiators are made through thoughtful, evidence-based skill-building. Thus, the course is structured around:

  • Applying analytical skills to gain a strategic understanding of negotiation contexts.
  • Learning empirically validated techniques for advancing your interests.
  • Practice, practice, and more practice.

You will have an opportunity to practice the acquired knowledge in hands-on activities such as scenario-based discussions, case studies and simulations in order to gain relevant skills.
