Course description

Effective Negotiation Techniques

People, project managers, and organizations negotiate every day. In this one-day course, participants will examine different types of negotiation techniques and when to best use them. First, the term "negotiation" must be defined. Does negotiation mean compromise and giving up things we should keep? Can we negotiate by taking unilateral action or will that cause a less-than-desirable outcome? Although we must use our intuition and experience to know when to negotiate, we can get better outcomes with some knowledge, skills, and techniques from which to choose the best negotiation strategy. The course content will explore the relationship between power, rights, and interests. By the end of the session, participants will become familiar with a variety of negotiation strategies and when to select (or change to) one technique over another.
