Courses: Negotiation Skills Level 1

Course Details:
In this course you will learn to prepare for negotiations, assess your alternatives, build a climate of collaboration, get beyond stubborn positioning, and develop agreements that work for both sides. Negotiation skills are essential in daily interactions with others. Traditional approaches to negotiation promote competitive tactics, often resulting in unsatisfactory outcomes for one or both negotiators. Collaborative or interest-based negotiation aims for agreements that respond to the interest of both parties. Emphasis is on skill development through simulated negotiations assisted by trained coaches.
