Mastery of negotiation is a life skill in that we all negotiate every day with colleagues, bosses, domestic partners, friends, clients and many others. This class is a dynamic mix of theory, demonstration, skills exercises and role play practice intended to increase your confidence and effectiveness in any negotiation you undertake. We explore critical negotiation theory and identification of motivating interests to improve both your approach to negotiation and the quality of your outcomes. We continue with the essentials of thorough preparation for a negotiation including setting specific targets, identifying sources of influence and defining the point of walk away with reference to a methodical alternatives analysis. While building this negotiation framework, we define and practice critical communication and influencing skills. We also outline a practical framework so that you have a clear map of an effective negotiation process. Participants should leave the class with a solid foundation for more principled, persuasive, and successful negotiation in a variety of contexts.
