Negotiation Workshop Description

This course examines the key features of integrative (I.E., pie expanding) and distributive (I.E., pie slicing) negotiations, such as BATNAs, target points, anchoring, resistance points, and creating options. It also explores critically important methods of persuasion, how to use such methods effectively, and how to defend against them. High-powered or multi-faceted negotiations require special attention to, or emphasis on, particular themes. This course also focuses on issues of leadership, ethics and trust, difficult people and circumstances, problem solving and creativity, multi-party negotiations, and team negotiations. The learning environment is interactive and experiential and includes open discussion, negotiation simulations, and the opportunity to analyze and evaluate disparate outcomes to the simulations through direct feedback.
