Through experiential tools, lectures and interactive analysis, participants will learn to change the way they view and evaluate action alternatives in competitive situations.

 

Through a blend of case studies, role plays and exercises, this 4-day experiential program provides executives opportunity to:

  • Learn the essentials of negotiations in varied business contexts
  • Understand how negotiating strategies are planned and implemented to optimize performance for self and others
  • Gain a deeper understanding of distributive (win/lose) and integrative (win/win) negotiation tactics
