Essential competencies for leading successful negotiations
  • Process Setting

    Framing, Re-Framing, and Agendas all play a part in efficient PROCESS SETTING. It is often a negotiation in itself. Gain researched insights on the affects of different approaches, and add best practices to your toolbox.

  • Identifying Interests & Motivations

    Negotiation requires questioning & listening par excellence. You'll adapt new communication structures to identify INTERESTS & MOTIVATIONS, and gather critical pieces information influencing outcomes & trust.

  • Joint-Problem Solving

    Breaking out of the veritable box of 'positional bargaining' to find efficient trading zones takes strong facilitation skills, heuristics, and clear collaborative intent. Learn to optimize deal space through JOINT-PROBLEM SOLVING.

  • Responding to Difficult Tactics

    DIFFICULT TACTICS played by the other side throw us off balance. RESPONDING effectively is simple, but not easy. We'll create a productive practice zone for managing your own reactions & responses to the tactics you anticipate.
